How do L shaped text frame in publisher?


Recommended Posts

Draw the shape with the Pen tool in Polygon Mode, close the shape then Layer - Convert to Text Frame. You can adjust the nodes of the text frame using Node Tool.

Depending on why you need it L-shaped, you could also use a standard rectangular text frame, and position another object over it (rectangle, image, etc.) and use Text Wrapping to wrap around that added object.

I drew the L shape with the Pen Tool in Polygon Mode, then adjusted the text wrap using Text - Text Wrap - Edit Text Wrap Settings.

This sounds my solution.
