  • Tighter Border Control with InDesign

    April 27th, 2006 by Russell Viers

    Here’s a question I get all the time: “Why won’t InDesign’s borders go to the inside of the frame instead of half-in and half-out?” Good question, for sure.

    It will, but not right out of the box as a default.
    You can use the Stroke Palette’s Align Stroke option to push it to the inside (middle button) with the frame, or multiple frames, selected.
    But what if you want that to be the default?
    You can make it a document default by deselecting all frames and selecting the middle button, or if you want it to be the application default, close all docs and do the same.
    Warning: Only the right frame tool (without the X) works as a default. If you make a frame with the left one (with the X in it), if you add a stroke, it will be half-in and half-out again…bummer.
