How to Add a Pull Quote to a Layout in Adobe InDesign
Creating a pull quote is really just a matter of creating a text frame and applying a text wrap to it.
- Create a text frame with the Type Tool, then enter and format the text for the quote.
- Switch to the Selection Tool. Go to the Window menu and select Text Wrap.
- In the Text Wrap panel, click the Wrap Around Bounding Box button and set the desired offset. (Note: The offsets can be asymmetrical.)
- Position the pull quote text frame on the body text frame that it is associated with.
