Vector Graphics: Classmates Project: Completion

Copy your files (done in the previous lab session) from your disk to a new folder on the desktop of the hard drive. Eject your disk. Open 'Take' folder for the Classmates project, compare with what you have on your own disk. Drag to your folder on the desktop any files you are missing. Make sure the Inspector palette is visible (Window menu) and extended. Click the Object Inspector icon (the leftmost in the top row). Use the arrow tool to select a photograph. Note that these adjustments won't be possible (and the 'Edit' button won't be available) if the photo was not saved as a grayscale TIFF file by the person who scanned it. Check that the prototype page contains only the items (text blocks and pictures) which you want as part of the layout. Be especially careful about partial overlaps of items not visible in Preview mode--switch to Keyline mode (using the menu at the bottom of the document window) to make sure. Use the Duplicate command in the Options menu of the Document Inspector as many times as needed to accommodate all the students, one to each page. As you duplicate the prototype page, the text and photo used to mock-up the design are duplicated as well. For each page, you want to replace the prototype text and photo with the text and photo provided by the student assigned to that page. Use Edit-->,Select-->,All to select all of the text, and Edit-->,Paste to replace it with the contents of the Clipboard. Use Edit-->,Cut Contents to pull the prototype photo out of the frame, then press the Delete key to remove the prototype photo. If the photo is too big to fit the frame, resize the photo by dragging one of its corner handles while holding down the Shift key (the Shift key prevents non-proportional scaling, which would distort the countenance of your classmate). Use the arrow tool to again select the frame on the new page, then use Edit-->,Paste Inside to place the contents of the Clipboard in the frame. inside a frame, you can simply delete it and drag the new student's picture to the same location on the page. You will have to manually ensure that the new photo is sized and positioned accurately. After you duplicate the prototype page, any and all changes are much more time-consuming since they must be repeated for every page. There is also a chance that some pages may end up being different from the others. To keep your publication consistent, you can use guides and styles. Select guides' orientation ('Horizontal' or 'Vertical'), number ('Count') or spacing ('Increment') and location ('Position'). Once defined, type styles can quickly apply multiple formatting commands to text. Revisions are also faster because you simply redefine the style. Finally, styles assist in maintaining consistent type format. Use the text tool to select the text you want to style. Use the commands in the top section of the Text menu to format text as desired. Double-click the default name of the new style and enter a descriptive name. Press the Enter key so that the new name is accepted. Before leaving, copy your FreeHand file and all student files to your Zip disks (you can overwrite the older versions). You will need to turn them in later for grading. Source.
