The caption inspector details you adjust the margins between the text and the caption outline if needed. You can
also choose the style for the caption or override the style attributes if necessary.
If the text is too close to the edges of the caption
(or not close enough) you can adjust the
margins by assigning new values to the
horizontal (H) and vertical (V) margins.
Prevents the caption from being moved or
Normally captions are cut off where they
intersect the edges of a panel. Unchecking this
option allows the caption to break the edge of
the panel for dramatic effect.
Use the Style popup menu to pick a different
style, or simply experiment until you create a
style you like.
If you have made a variation to the selected
style, then an asterisk appears next to the style
name. Your element is now unique!
If you want to share this new style, then create
a New style.
New styles can be created under Style
Attributes with the '+ New' button - a sheet
appears that lets you name the new style. When
you click "OK" the new style is created and the
element is set to use the new style. Now you
can set other elements to have the same style.
You can also Update the current style - be
careful! - this will also change the attributes of
every other object (in this style).
The default style cannot be changed, so you will need to create a new style, which you can then use on other
If you don't like your changes, press the Revert button to go back to the original style.
See Caption Styles
for more information on each setting.
