Select an object to flip. If you use the Direct Selection tool to select multiple objects or paths, dragging moves only the selected graphic, path, or anchor points.
A transformation affects all selected objects as a single unit. To flip the content without its frame, direct-select the object.
The Free Transform tool works the same way it does in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator, by providing a way to perform any transformation with just one tool.
Similarly, you can use other measurement system values if you want to scale to a specific increment but have the results display in percent of the original. Adobe InDesign allows you to create complex textual designs, such as flyers or magazine layouts. Choose Clear Transformations from the Transform or Control panel menu. Link panel customization has always been little confusing to me.
To scale both the frame and its content, use the Selection tool to select the frame. Do either of the following in the Rotate section of the dialog box: Rotate an object with the Free Transform tool.
You can use the Move command to move an object by a specific amount. Rotate and reflect objects Search.
Nice, elegant solution. For example, two frames of the same height will display the same height values in the Transform and Control panels, regardless of differences in their stroke weights. Probably because this article was written in 2006, before that feature was available!
Move objects to a precise location.
To scale a frame without scaling the content, direct-select the frame, and select all the anchor points. If you start to drag at a non-perpendicular angle and then hold down the Shift key, shearing is constrained to that angle. A positive angle rotates the axes counterclockwise; a negative angle rotates the axes clockwise.
