InDesign Template Essentials: Text Frame Object Styles

Another month, another free template for our Premium members! (Not a Premium member? Sign up here.)

This month we have another set of Template Essentials devoted to text frames with object styles applied to them. Using these items can save you time and remind you of the fantastic things you can do with object styles.

The set includes text frames with simple objects styles that just control the number and width of columns,


styles that apply inset and corner options,


and styles that show how to incorporate several text frame attributes to create an overall effect.


Other styles help you work with footers, folios, captions, anchored items, and drop caps.


If you’re currently logged in to as a Premium member (monthly or annually-paid), the download link appears below.
