Moving frames

You can move individual frames around pages, including master pages, after they have been input.


You cannot move frames beyond page margins or to other pages. If you want frames to appear on different pages, you can either copy them to other pages or delete them from their original pages and create new frames on the new pages.


  • Frames is selected in the Engrave toolbox.

  • If you want to move frames on a master page, you have opened the master page in the master page editor.


  1. Select the frames you want to move.
  2. Move the frames in any of the following ways:
    • Press Alt/Opt-Right Arrow to move them to the right.

    • Press Alt/Opt-Left Arrow to move them to the left.

    • Press Alt/Opt-Up Arrow to move them upwards.

    • Press Alt/Opt-Down Arrow to move them downwards.


      If you want to move items by larger increments, you can press Ctrl/Cmd as well as the standard key command, for example, Ctrl/Cmd-Alt/Opt-Left Arrow.

    • Click and drag them in any direction.


The selected frames are moved to new positions.


You can also move frames by using properties in the Frames group of the Properties panel.

  • Height: Available for frames with unlocked top or bottom constraints.

  • Width: Available for frames with unlocked right or left constraints.

  • Left/Top/Right/Bottom: Available for frames with the corresponding locked constraints.
