There are 4 attributes of the textbox frame that you can modify in the Textbox Attributes dialog by checking the corresponding checkbox and setting a value (if a checkbox is unchecked, the corresponding value will be ignored).


Pt. Size: use this value to modify the textbox frame's thickness. Recall that changing the size of a box frame behaves differently in QuarkXPress than in InDesign.

Shade: use this value to modify the textbox frame's shade. This value is in percentage, where 100% corresponds to the full color, and 0% to white.

Color: to edit this option select one of the list of colors contained in the current GridTemplate.

Style: use the dropdown list of frame styles to select a style to apply to the textbox's frame.

Overprint: activate this option to add or remove the overprint attribute from the textbox's frame (only available when using InDesign).


This group of options appears in the macros resulting actions, the saras advanced change actions and the current month and current week minicalendar options.
