Precision Placement of Text Boxes in Layout

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to use temp dimensions (or anything) to place a text box in a precise position ?

 

say 3" from left and 5" from top ?

Just use a regular dimension or temporary dimension...

or snap the text box to the corner of your page (by grabbing the corner edit handle of your text box using your center mouse button), hit tab while dragging back toward where you want it...then type in the desired dimensions for movement.

Michael:

 

I must be missing a setting ?

 

when I select the text box I don't get temp dimensions ?

 

I do for lines ?

 

ok, I forgot about the tab method

it works but I would prefer to use temp dims
