All you need to know about text fields in Publisher, Part 1: Use drawing tools
This set of tipps for publishers tells you everything you need to know about text fields in publishers! Texts fields are used to create all text on the pages in thelisher, so if you are composing a page, use them. From the Home page, on the ribbon, go to the Objects group and click the Draw Text Box buttom.
Right-click and dragging the pointer to the Publisher page, then releasing it to generate a text area. You can now see your text field and it's it' then! Ensure that your text field is selected: you should see the checkboxes around it, and you should have two context-sensitive tab pages on the Ribbon:
Drafting and textbox utilities. When your text field is checked, click Drawing Utilities on the Ribbon. You can use these utilities to modify the look of the "box" of your text field. Under Shape Styles, choose the option Shape Fill and choose a colour. In the Outlines tab, choose the Outlines option next to Fill and choose a colour.
You can also use the drop-down arrows next to the contour to change the contour width ("weight") or create a dotted line ("strokes"). Create a look like a shadow: Under Form Styles, click Shape Effects. The" Shadow" option is often used to create a Dropshadow effect to make the speakers disappear from the page.
Modify the form of the text field: Click Modify Form below the Insert Form group and choose the desired form group. Here is our text field with only these four changes: a diamonds text field with fill and contour colours and a cast shade! When you have text on your publishers page and you want your text field to "interrupt" the remainder of the text on the page, you can use other drawing tools to build a more sophisticated outfit.
Choose the text field that contains the parentheses, and then click the Arrange group on the ribbon and click Backward. Modify the text stream around the text field: To choose the text field, click it, and then click the Wrap Text on the ribbon. Allows you to choose one of the following items.
Modify the text field size: Lastly, one of the most useful but little used groups of drawing tools is the measurement, which allows you to precisely input heights and widths to modify the width of your text area. Drawing tools let you dramatically and quickly modify the look of your text field, which includes colour, form, size, and text-wrap.
We' ll report on text field options on the ribbon in our next issue of everything you need to know about text fields in Publisher! Ever wanted to modify the name of multiple file at once?
