Text Frame Options


To change the number of columns in a text frame after creating it: Select the frame with the Object tool. Choose Text Frame Options from the Frame submenu in the Object menu to display the Text Frame Options dialog box. Ticking the Custom Widths box will show each of the column widths in the Widths list. Clicking on one of the widths will show the current values in the Width and Gutter text boxes which can be changed to custom values. Changing the number of columns in the Column text box will change the number of columns appearing in the Widths selector box.

Alternatively, enter new values into the Edit palette's #C and G text boxes for text column frames to set the columns to equal widths.

To change the text margin inside the text frame: Select the frame with the Object tool. Choose Text Frame Options from the Frame submenu in the Object menu to display the Text Frame Options dialog box. Enter the left, right, top and bottom margin to leave between the edge of the frame and the inside frame for text. Note: This option only works for rectangular text frames.
