Advanced Anchored Objects In Adobe InDesign CC

Hi there in this video, we're going to look at doing anchored objects that aren't in the flow of text. Well, at least they're on the side here, which this if I add some returns, it flows along, but it's not in the particular text box. I'm gonna show you some cool tricks for doing that. Plus how to do it with like multiple objects by grouping them. Let's go and do that now in in design. Alright. The first thing is let's bring in our image. So let's go to file and go to place on page. One hour tables page. Okay. And I'm gonna bring it in from the exercise files. Oh three magazine and there's one in there called Image One coffee table. Okay, I'm gonna bring mine in over here. It's just a random size. Okay, We'll change it in a second. So I've got this guy here now, a normal anchored object. All you do is grab your black arrow, you cut it. So edit cut. Okay, get your cursor where you want it to be, let's say here, okay, and then you just paste it. So I've used edit paste and it means it ki...

nd of flows up and down with the text, but I want to do some more advanced stuff. Okay, So I'm gonna put it back over there. I'm gonna do a couple of things. I want to add a title over here. Something's going to be called coffee tables. I'm gonna use my paragraph style before. Where are you stiles? We created a subheading one. We'll use that and that doesn't work because I did some stuff to it when we're working with the keep options. So I'm gonna click off in the background nothing selected. Open up subheadings go down to keep and I'm going to say anywhere, so zero anywhere. For some reason I got this paragraph shading as well which we can turn off here under paragraph shading. Turn that off. Okay, cool. So all I wanted was a heading. Okay, and but what I'd like to do is instead of getting it to flow with text, I wanted to be out here but kind of connected to the flow of text. So that's what we're gonna do. The quick, easy option is that we see this blue box here. Okay. Black arrow blue box. What you can do is you can say you drag, drag, drag, I want you to flow along there. The cool thing about that is you can see it's got like a little anchored object down. Okay, so even though it's not in the flow of text, watch this if I put in return that goes along with the text. So even like that just like that, that's super handy. Okay, especially if you've got like diagrams that pop out on the side that help explain things that are in the text. Okay, so that's some more advanced anchored objects. What I'm gonna do is I'm gonna undo until it was back over here. Okay, Without it being linkedin and I want to show you a couple of other things, let's say that I want to maybe put this inside of a circle. Okay, so we're gonna kind of use our options that we did earlier on some of the drawing techniques. I'm gonna use the ellipse tool, I'm gonna hold shift to draw on her lips, okay? And with this right over the top of this guy, I'm gonna cut the image. Okay? And select on my circle and go to edit paste into. Okay, that gives me my image inside this circle, which is awesome. Next of all I want are an ellipse and what I want to do is have no film. I actually don't have that circle selected over here, have nothing selected then go to her lips and say we're like no Phil and like a stroke of our MF green which is under MF Okay, I'm going to go up to about six points to draw on the lips roughly about that sort of size. Maybe increase it up to the size and I want to stick this together with these two and and I wanted to flow along with the text. First of all, I want to align it so I can see my align panel over here. You might have to go to window object align okay and go you and you. Okay, so align vertical and horizontal, but watch this if I can't anchor this now, that little blue box isn't there? I can't cut and paste it in. It just doesn't work. So if you ever find yourself in this position, we've got two things kind of two separate things. I'm gonna scare mine down for no reason. Um You have to group them first, so select both of these. Go to object group or command G. On a Mac or control D. On a PC. Then grab this little blue box and just drag them in. Okay, now that little group will follow along. Okay, so the easy thing is grabbing the blue box and dragging it where you need it to be. And just a little extra kind of information is that if you have got multiple parts like the image and the circle, they need to be grouped first and then they can flow along with the text. All right, that's it. For anchored objects. Let's get on to the next video.
