Creating text frames

In Chapter 3, Planning your Site, we had our first introduction to text boxes when we created a wireframe mock up and added a number of rectangles, including one text frame, to hold our dummy text.

In Chapter 4, Powerful Pages, we added the title of our website "Windsurf Wild" to our master pages and in Chapter 5, The Joy of Rectangles, we added some text content to our Learning page. We're going to continue adding text content to our windsurfing site now.

In Muse, if it's not already open, open your site by choosing File | Open Site from the menu or click on the name of your windsurfing site on the Muse Welcome page.

There is more than one way to add text to our pages. We can do any of the following:

  • Draw a text frame and then type directly into the frame

  • Draw a text frame and then copy the text from another source, for example, a word document or from an Internet site, and paste it into the text frame

  • Place a .txt (basic text file) by choosing File | Place in the menu
