howto4.5 Use artistic text


This tutorial demonstrates how to design your document's masthead (title) for the front cover using reverse text, and how to create other interesting typography to liven up the inside pages. It also explains how to place text on a curve, warp it, create drop caps to start articles, and group elements to form a single graphic. Headings do not have to be restricted to the typeface you selected for the body of the publication. They give you the chance to use a more fancy font - and PagePlus has a very wide selection to choose from. One will be just right for your subject and type of reader.

The example magazine uses Amelia BT throughout for large headings and Verdana for smaller headings and body copy.
