Subdividing a Page

Post by Haraldg » Fri Feb 05, 2010 8:59 pm

Is it possible to subdivide a page in TextMaker? I am migrating to this superb software from WordPerfect and use that feature quite a bit. I worked around it for a landscape mode page by making two colums, but when a page is in portrait mode and I want to make two rows, or divide the paper top and bottom with margins, I cannot find where to do that.
Thanks for any help!

Hi Harald, I'm not sure if I quite understand your problem. There are lots of ways to subdivide a page in TextMaker, so could you please describe more in detail what exactly you want to accomplish?
Cheers

Thanks so much for the quick response Jossi. I want to take a page, in portrait mode and divide it top to bottom in half, so that I have half inch margins all around both halves of the subdivided page. Essentially instead of having two vertical columns, I want to have two horizontal rows, each of them half of the page.

I think you are thinking in a too complicated way... :wink:

Simply go to object mode, insert two text frames and position them accordingly. If text should flow from one frame to the other, link them.

Thanks so much Martin. I am obviously not used to using text boxes in that way. I am used to being able to do that simply in the document setup page with check boxes to divide my paper into however many sections I want.
Will do you suggestion!
Thanks
Harald

Thanks for the help. Making text boxes certainly works, but is much more complex than what I was accustomed to in WP. I will just create several templates of the way I usually use this feature and then be ready to go when I need them. :)
