Frame spacing pop-up measurements

Recommended Posts

When using the Move Tool to move text or picture frames and you have highlighted a frame, you can then use the arrow keys (left, right, up, down) to move that frame in small increments - and a measurement value pops-up so you can monitor the spacing. Unfortunately, when working with either the Picture Frame Rectangle Tool or Frame Text Tool, the pop-up measurement isn't visible. Now there are some measurements when using either of those tools as you move the frames, but they are only useful for rough placement as you hold down the mouse button to move the frame - it is difficult to get an exact measurement. So to do a fine-tune movement, you have to switch to the Move Tool. Having had to do that hundreds of times, it occurred to me that if those spacing measurements were visible any time a frame is highlighted, then I wouldn't have to keep switching back and forth between a frame tool and the Move Tool to do fine-tuning of spacing. So that is a suggestion to consider, please.
