Object style x/y coordinates?

Object style x/y coordinates?

Object style x/y coordinates?

Is there any way to define a object style with x/y coordinates? I have to manually move objects throughout a 500+ page book and didn't know if it is possible to define coordinates via an object style. Any thoughts?

RE: Object style x/y coordinates?

You can't do that.

But you can place an image frame on the master page, then you can override that image frame for all pages.

Then you can place an image in there no problem.

As long as you don't move the frame on the main pages and only move it on the master page, it should move on all the pages.


RE: Object style x/y coordinates?

Or make guides on the master page for where the image is supposed to be and snapping them would be... well a snap.


RE: Object style x/y coordinates?

Thanks for you suggestion. I have resorted to manually moving the text container and resetting my nudge to offset the second box.
