Working with Frames
Chapter 25
Designing Your Own Publication
To move a frame to a different page, select
the frame and then choose Home>
Clipboard>Cut or press Ctrl+X. Display
the page you want the frame placed in
and choose Home>Clipboard>Paste or
press Ctrl+V.
To rotate a frame and its contents, use the
green rotation handle. Position the mouse
pointer over the handle until the mouse
pointer turns into a small semicircle. Drag
the rotation handle until the frame is at
the angle you want. See Figure 25-17 for
an example.
To change the frame size, select the frame
and position the mouse over a selection
handle. When the mouse pointer appears as
a double-headed arrow, drag the handle
until the frame is the size you want (see
Figure 25-16). Use the middle handles to
drag straight up, down, left, or right, and
use the corner handles to change both the
height and width. If you have text in a text
frame, when you resize the frame the text
rewraps to fit the new size. If you have a
graphic in a picture frame, be cautious
when dragging a side handle as doing so
can distort the image proportions.

Working with Frame Styles
Even though onscreen you see dotted lines
surrounding a frame, those lines do not print. They
are there to help you visualize the frame location
relative to other screen items. Adding a border or
background shading to a text frame is a great way
to make the frame stand out and attract attention.
A border surrounds the frame but does not affect
what is inside the frame, and adding background
shading fills the entire frame area with a color. To
save you time, Publisher offers border and shading
combinations in a gallery of predefined styles. The
following steps show you how to add borders and
background shading to your text frames.
