Scrollable Content


Add scrollable text blocks and zoomable images

How to add Scrollable Content

The 'Scrollable content' option allows you to add scrollable content to a container frame with the following steps:

  1. Create a text frame for the full length of the text.
  2. Create a container of the size you want using the Rectangle Frame Tool.
  3. Cut the text frame and then select 'Paste into' to Paste that text into the smaller container frame.

The same applies to adding image content to the frame.

Options for Scrollable Content

Scrollable Content

Show Scroll Bars

Zooming Enabled

If you want to make an image zoomable, make sure to place it in the frame at the maximum zoom-in size that you want to allow. It will be scaled to fit in the frame.

    Hi Hervé

    We deleted this option because it was very hard to maintain (on both platforms) and it was not often used.
