Creating the display text With imagination you can use PageMaker to create display text elements that go a long way toward enhancing your publications. Display text, usually 14 points or larger, serves to attract attention. Notice that you did not need to click the Apply button or press Enter or Return to apply the new font and size to the letter. Resizing text blocks 8 With the text tool still selected, click the pasteboard above the page a little away from the uppercase B and plus sign, again, to avoid inserting the cursor in the same text block as the other two characters , and type a lowercase letter b.
On the Macintosh, you can get the same result if you select AGaramond Italic directly. Once a text element is selected as a text block with the pointer tool , the text block can be resized, positioned, or transformed.
Notice how the windowshades extend well beyond the bounds of the uppercase B. It is easier to work with a text block when its width is close to the width of its content, especially in a design like this where you are. The selection area of text includes the text block. So, when a text block is oversized, you can mistakenly select it even though you are clicking quite a distance from the actual text.
As mentioned before, spot colors are printed on a printing press using premixed inks. Use spot colors when an element such as a corporate logo requires an exact color match, or to add impact to your publication. Incorporating spot and process colors into a publication created in PageMaker is simple, but to get the best printed results, you need to understand how spot and process colors are printed.
Always discuss a project with your service provider and printer. With the width of the text blocks reduced, it is easier to select, view, and manipulate these text blocks. The Color Options dialog box prompts you to select a color. Each model represents a different approach to describing color. For more information, refer to the Adobe PageMaker 7.
PANTONE offers spot colors that set the industry standard for reproducible spotcolor inks, and 3, process colors organized chromatically, including process-color simulations of the spot-color library. Now you can select or create another color. Although you can click a color to select it, typing the ink number if you know it is often faster than scrolling to locate a color. Applying spot colors After opening the Colors palette, you will apply the spot colors you just selected to the display text.
In addition to text, you can apply colors to lines, rectangles, ellipses, and monochrome and grayscale bitmap images. Colors palette.

Opening an existing document This lesson covers: AGaramond Bold Italic.
It is our judgment that the quantity and quality of natural light and external views deemed adequate for underground spaces in the Northern Pointe Development cannot be established with certainty. It is very possible that significant heating and cooling economies would be achieved by virtue of underground construction and the application of appropriate solar collection techniques.
Birch is a particularly legible condensed display typeface and is notable for its angled serifs. To move forward one page. Spectacular solar site: Automobile ramp access from Grant Road to below grade parking will need to be given further consideration as well. It should be noted that extensive above grade construction would impair efforts to provide natural illumination for below grade spaces. A recent study of such underground architectural spaces notes that many of the kinds of space with which we are dealing.
The southern face of proposed structures along Grant Road offer optimum orientation for collection of solar energy. All fonts used in this publication are Adobe Originals fonts. Project Plan Skylights. In utilizing the Northern Pointe site. Other organizations were queried to form the basis of judgment in determining the overall need. Preliminary analysis of the site has indicated that it would be feasible to construct three below grade levels.
In addition. An effort has been made to work with the full extent of space requirements currently voiced by the Western Division Management Center and the Bella Coola Village Organization. Italic appear in font menus in Windows applications. The extent of above grade construction is constrained by a desire to limit the maximum height of new construction to about 25 feet to 28 feet above grade.
Characteristic examples of such spaces would be conference centers. This could be accomplished through the use of sunken gardens which would adjoin below grade working areas to provide light as well as important visual orientation and variety. With these parameters in mind. The page icons in the lower left corner of the publication window indicate this document consists of three pages.
To move backward one page. Characteristic occupancy of such spaces would by relatively secondary and routinized. This assumes that recommended measures would be taken to preserve the Douglas Fir trees. It can be recognized that sunken gardens or other light-searching architectural elements will require substantial space to be fully effective. This recognizes that as the program development progresses. The left margin of the second page displays the rotated display text.
Yet it is evident that space will be required and must be set aside for natural light. Accordingly, we believe that space for natural light and view must be initially allocated on the basis of approximate judgment in lieu of more fixed guidelines.
We expect that during further development of this project, new information may suggest some adjustment of this allocation. In the time frame of Northern Pointe development it is felt that the Douglas Fir trees alone would merit preservation during construction, although replacement planting of a number of major trees is envisioned to follow construction. The current space planning figures reflect these assumptions. The resulting total , gross square feet of space estimated to be available for development exceeds the current requirements of , square feet by a moderate amount.
We would not necessarily suggest any further increase in the program size to more closely match the space available for development.
There is considerable leeway for adjustment of the siting and configuration of the above grade buildings under consideration. At this level of investigation, only schematic studies of this question can be undertaken.
A number of schemes of massing options have been studied, and the strongest two have been selected for illustration to suggest alternate ways to approach this unique problem. At this stage, it is suggested that the recommendations in this study be equally reviewed. However, to save disk space, all the images in this project have been scanned at dpi. Assembling a master page Every PageMaker publication contains at least one body page and one master page.
While body pages contain the actual text and graphics of the publication, master pages contain repeating elements, such as margin and column guides, page numbers, headers, and footers. In PageMaker, the default master page is called Document Master. You can create and name additional master pages if your publication contains more than one page design. To produce a more cohesive design for this multipage publication, you will establish a master page that will contain a variety of design elements, such as guides, repeating text, page numbering, and graphic elements that will be common to all its pages.
At this juncture it would appear reasonable to expect that , square feet of space could be accommodated below grade, easily accommodating the three-level design. Further expansion below grade to the north of the Grant Community Center may constitute valuable space available for further development, although it has not been studied herein or included in available space estimates.
Although the constraints on above grade construction do not directly translate into. Again, the left margin displays the graphics and rotated display text.
When printed on a dpi or dpi desktop laser printing device, grayscale photographic images scanned at a resolution of dpi will meet the print quality requirements of this publication. Grayscale illustrations, however will print more clearly. Creating a new publication To create a master page, create a new or open an existing publication, and then display the master page itself.
Make sure Letter is. Click Double-sided to deselect it. To set the margin guides, type 2. Choose dpi for Target. The page 1 icon is highlighted, indicating page 1 is selected. To import, create, and modify text and graphic elements on a master page, you must select the master page. PageMaker displays the master page, and highlights the R icon.
A single-sided publication has only one master-page icon. In a double-sided publication, you would see master-page icons L and R for the left and right master pages. Any column guides or ruler guides you create on a master page are automatically displayed on publication pages. Even though it is possible to vary column guides from page to page, placing column guides on master pages provides a consistent look throughout a publication. In addition, specifying column guides on the master page saves you the effort of specifying column guides on individual pages.
Type 2 for Number of columns, and click OK. In previous lessons, you used the Colors palette to apply tints lightened colors to text and graphic objects. In this lesson, you will add two tints of black to the Colors palette, providing a shortcut to applying the same tint to multiple objects.
