2. Drag the divider to the right of the page buttons in the lower left corner of the document window to expose additional page buttons for easy navigation.


3. Return to the Document Layout palette and activate layer 1 on page 1.


4. Using the Text tool texttool.gif click once inside the right column of the text section. This will create a text object and place it in edit mode. You will see a blinking text cursor in the upper left corner of the new text object. This is the insertion point for new text.


5. Click File > Place, then navigate to the file containing the text of the document. In this case the file is named "lorem ipsum.txt" but your file may have been saved with a different name. Select the file, then click "Place".


6. Canvas will place the text inside the text object.


7. There is more text than will fit in the text object so Canvas places a text overset indicator at the bottom. Click this indicator with the Selection tool.


8. When you do, the pointer will change into the text flow pointer. The next click in the layout area creates a new text object which links the text flow.


9. Click the page button to display page two.
