So let us come down to that layers palette and make sure that the Tints and Bars layer is available turn if it lock because we are going to draw a new frame on here, comeback up to the tools and choose the rectangle tool, just come over here to scroll across a little way and again I am just going to draw a frame that a lines with this top hand guide just click and drag to make sure it snaps and then once we let it go we can hit the VK to go back to the main selection tool. Now I am just going to take a left hand point here let us drag it over so it is snap onto the red outside line and do not forget that our blend. So we guaranteeing here that is color frame no matter what is in or past it is going to give us a 5 mm of bled off the side if you do hit the W key and turn on preview mode at this point and you will see that those 5 mm will be trim down when the document is printed to a very neatly done. Let us hit the W key again to go out of preview mode and what we are going to do is just change the weight of this frames so it goes across the entire spread to keep going across until the document scrolls all the way to the right hand side ad snap it into that right hand bled margin as will or we can undo is her inside the control palette double checking that the angle point is set to any one of the upper three values of upper left is find let us change the height of this to just 40 mm. I had recently doing that it gives us nice even spacing we have actually got 20 mm here we are going to give ourselves another ten before we drop in a text frame the text frame will be about 20 mm high leaving another ten underneath. Because e have ten in here also if we rich the margin we are going get a very nice and neat layout design here for a type. So let us scroll all the way back over to the left hand side. Just like we did on the first page we have solid box that was solid black and we decided to drop it down to around 20%. Let us come back down to the color palette briefly there is a fill color once again let us drag it down to around about 20% that does not have to be accurate at this point, it is just a color reference and in come back over to the layers pallet and make sure that this layer is now locked.
Now the reason we are doing that if just unlock it again or a second and this time hit the T key which gives us he type tool another little shortcut. If we were to then decide to draw a new text frame over the top of this one, remember that if we position our cursor right of it and it becomes rounded we can accidently turn that box into a text frame. We want to avoid that. So y locking out he bars layers here and going to the type layer positioning that cursor over that button now will generate a new frame anyway. So let us go ahead and draw a new text frame that takes up just the first column with once again, click and drag so it snaps in to the margins, once it is done let us go back to the main selection too make a couple of quick changes. The height of this is going to be exactly 20 mm. Remember to hit return or and to apply that and of the weight access let us again make that nice and neat by specifying it to be a 30 mm down. So we have this perfect 10 mm space all the way around between this and where the next one more set. Now to duplicate this one, we an do exactly the same as before by holding down the alt key of the option key dragging and then holding down the shift key to keep it straight now when we drop into that second frame once you have let go the mouse and then let go the keys, give this a try. Press control D to do a duplicate command and we now have a new feature of InDesigns CS2 which is the ability to step and repeat a command base on the previous values that we have done. In this case, moving the object base on the overall values of our columns here so we could at this point if we wanted to not the way guarantee to use it we could scroll across and say control D again and again and again and you will see we will continue to duplicate those frames base on exactly that 10 mm gap. Unless you use undo those last three so we end up with the original free text frames and then hold down the shift key and select the second and the first one together then just go back to the alt key on its own once again start to drag one of those frames when you start he dragging hold down the shifty come all the way across to that first one snaps into the first margin here on the right hand page. We now have six text frames ready to fill with type.
