Adjusting text runaround for a drop shadow

If you have a drop shadow that is covering text or is too close to text to read, you can adjust the runaround for the drop shadow. To run text around all sides of an item,

  1. Select a text box with either the Text Content tool or the Item tool ,
  2. Choose the Drop Shadow tab of the Measurements palette.
  3. Check Runaround Drop Shadow.


The text will automatically runaround the drop shadow.
