Example text

You can place or drag-and-drop text files, and you can thread (link) text frames with either of the selection tools, but they won't let you touch the text. The Type tool has a pop-out menu to select the Type on a Path tool (shortcut Shift+T), which lets you select a path or frame and enter text onto it so it follows the path or frame's outline. Line tool The Line tool (shortcut E) lets you draw freestanding lines (rules) on your page. To use this tool, simply click and drag it. You can use the rulers, the new Control palette, or the Transform pane to size and position the line precisely.

After you learn all the keyboard commands, you can create and refine a layout with-out ever reaching for the Tools palette. In no time, you'll be switching from the Scale tool to the Rotate tool with a quick punch of the R key, then hitting T to add a text frame. Now, obviously, you can't use the keyboard commands for selecting tools while typing or editing text, but they are worth remembering for switching tools while designing a layout. In many production environments, copy editors handle text changes, while layout artists handle design issues — in such environments, the layout artists would learn these shortcuts, while the copy editors would avoid them.

When you work with special-case documents, such as a single-page display ad, it doesn't make much sense to spend time designing master pages and styles — it's easier just to format one-of-a-kind elements on the fly. In other cases, deciding which tool is appropriate is more difficult. For example, you can create drop caps (large initial letters set into a paragraph of type, like the drop cap that starts each chapter in this book) as a character option in the Character pane, or you can create a character style (formatting that you can apply to any selected text, ensuring the same formatting is applied each time) that contains the drop-cap settings and apply that style to the drop cap.
