Anchored objects are items, such as images or text boxes, that are attached - or anchored - to specific text. The anchored object travels with the text containing the anchor as the text reflows. Use anchored objects for all objects that you want associated with a particular line or block of text. One example when this is used is when you want the name.lastname in an e-mail address to be editable and attached to a locked ending of the email address in an editable business card.
Here follows a guide on how to create anchored objects in Indesign on your editable templates.
1. Create three text frames
2. Input text into text frame #2 and #3
3. Assign autosize "width only" to text frame #2
4. Assign autosize "width only" to text frame #3
5. Copy text frame #2. Use type tool, and paste text frame #2 in to text frame #1
6. Copy text frame #3. Use type tool, and paste text frame #3 in to text frame #1
7. Assign autosize "width only" to text frame #1
8. Select and lock anchored text frame
Now when uploading this template to Gelato Globe you will be able to change the name.surname in the e-mail address but @gelato.com will be locked and anchored to the chosen text you insert before.
