• To create a professional document, entities need to be arranged and sized just right. To help you do that, LayOut includes several tools and features, including a grid, inference cues, and an Arrange menu. When you select an entity, its bounding box has tools for moving, rotating, and scaling the entity, or you can use the keyboard or the Measurements box to enter precise changes. See the following sections for details about nudging your entities into the right position.

  • LayOut’s line and shape tools make it easy to draw visual elements that give your document a polished look. These tools can help you organize content on each page so your audience can easily follow along. For example, you might add a titleblock to convey basic information or highlight a detail in your project with a clipping mask, as shown in the following figure.
