  • Maria Gee says:

    Thanks for the great tips. Just finished trying them all out, and I seem to have a problem with Tip #3 – using the arrows to create a grid out of a rectangle. When I try this tip my arrow keys nudge the rectangle around on the page, rather than dividing it into a grid as described. This happens for both text and object rectangles.

    I figure I must have a setting somewhere that is off, but can’t locate it. If you know the answer, I’d greatly appreciate an email.

    Thanks in advance for your time.
