  1. In a new InDesign document, select the text tool from the tool palette on the left.[premium content]
  2. Click and drag a text box where you would like to start typing text. You can now begin typing text.
  3. If you have text in a word document that you would like to put in your InDesign document (Exercise 3.1), you can place the text in the text box you just created.
  4. Click outside of the text box so that nothing is selected.
  5. Navigate to File>Place… or press ctrl+d (cmd + d on a mac)
  6. The “Place” dialog box will open. From here navigate to your word document and click “open.”
  7. Now move your cursor over the text box you want the text to go in and click. The text will fill the box. If there is more text than can fit in the text box, the text will be “overset” which is indicated by a red “+” sign in the bottom right corner of the text box (see below).[premium content]
  8. You can chain text boxes together by clicking on the red “+” sign and just as you placed text before, click on the next text box that you want to continue your text within.
