  Canvas 6™ Technical Manual Project
Part 3G - Build The Document

Return To Technical Manual Project Index

49. Position the new graphic element in the upper right corner of page one and enter the following x and y coordinates into the Transform palette.


50. This is a finished view of page one.


51. Navigate to page two using the page buttons in the lower left corner of the document window or by using the Document Layout palette.


52. Using the Text tool texttool.gif drag out a new text object at the top of the page from the left margin to the right margin. Depending on which method you use for snapping (either grids or guides) the new text object should snap to the top, left and right margins. This new text object will serve as the page header. The text will vary from page to page so that is why it is not on the masters.


52. Type the words "Chapter 1" in the new text object. The Transform palette should confirm the width and position of the text object.


53. Set the font to 18 point Poppl-Laudatio Regular, BoldItalic, left justified with 18 points of leading.

54. Make sure the page header text object is selected and that it is not in edit mode, then click Edit > Copy. Navigate to page three and paste a copy at the top of the page. Drag it into position. Again, it should snap to the same coordinates as page two.


55. Navigate to page four and, again, paste a copy at the top of the page and drag it into position. It should snap to the same coordinates as page two and three.


56. Return to page three and select the page header text object then click the right justification button on the Text Ruler. Using the Text tool select the text and type the name of the subhead whose topic appears on the top of page three. In this case it should be "Vero Eros".


Note: There is a pattern to the page headers in this project. Even numbered pages have the chapter number for the header and odd numbered pages have the name of the subhead whose topic occurs at the top of the page. We are manually creating a "running header" - where text from the document appears in the page heads. Although Canvas doesn't support running headers using variables like it does with page numbering, you can make them manually in this fashion.
