Struggling from PageMaker!
on May 18, 2006 at 6:46:25 pm

Can someone tell me how to make an object "non-printing"? This was fairly easy in PageMaker. But I am loosing it... trying to figure out what InDesign might call it and where it is found. A graphic artist here has never used that feature even though she is really good at what she does. So.... How can I make a line, or circle that I have created... visible but it won't print?

thanks... I know it must be simple... but I am being forced to move over to this new program. :)

From the WIndows Menu select the Attributes pallett, then select "non-printing".

Note: such non-printing objects will not appear on screen in the preview mode.

Select the text box with the selection tool (NOT the Direct Selection Tool). Make sure the text box doe NOT have a fill assigned to it. Then (I use the object contextual menus) control-click (or right-click on PC) the text box and select Drop Shadow, etc.

The trick is to have no fill assigned to the box/frame.

Thanks. I use PM 6.5 at home on a PC and PM 7.0 at work on a MAC but OS 9.x is a pain to use from OS X so they want me to get with it on InDesign. Lots of familiar things but other things are wierd. Thanks again. Glenn
