A common graphic technique is to have a title within (interrupting) a frame border. I tried to recreate this in InDesign by shifting the paragraph, the paragraph shading and the paragraph border all up into the frame border. It almost works. Important-Points-2.jpg

If the pagagraph and shading and boreder could overprint the frame border, this would be a very nice design trick. I thought about doing it as an anchored object with a PNG file, but figured it probably woldn't work. I gave up and ended up with this:

It's nice but not as nice.

Hi Keith,

 

The best solution I could come up with is to use object styles that nest the paragraph styles and then add an anchor. If you need more information I can certainly provide it.

Thanks very much, Barb! My mind stuck at the point of creating a graphic to use as an anchored object. You smarts now let me do what I wanted. I didn't nest anything, I just copied and pasted a text frame with a suitable object style manually into a paragraph style at the top of each box. Worked like a charm. Thanks again!
