The layout of a page may be changed by sweeping-out 'clip-area' fields then using the mouse to drag-and-drop them to a new part of the page.
|1.||Define an area on the page containing the text, images, drawn paths etc. to be moved: hold the left mouse button down, drag out the area then release the mouse button.|
|2.||The swept area is shown outlined in red. Hold down the Ctrl key and click down in the area: the outline changes to blue.|
Tip: you may rearrange the page contents without changing the original document by holding-down the Shift key as well as the Ctrl key.
|3.||Drag the area to its new position on the page and release the mouse button; any features recognized by EscapeE within the area are dragged along by the same distances.|
|4.||Normally the area is defined as a field in the page on view only; to define the same area as fields in every page of the document instead:|
|4.2.||Deselect This page only option.|
Behind the scenes, EscapeE uses the MoveText plugin to relocate the clip-areas. If you have enabled the plugin then the new layout will be preserved; if it is disabled, the change will be temporary until the page is reloaded.
Tip: In addition to rearranging the areas on the current page, you may add areas copied from other pages – see Creating an IDF document.
