To Kalea!

Hey! I was looking for something to do today, and Mr. Roberts told me to look at your club layout.  First off, I really like it.  Is it the first layout you've made?  It's really good!  I did mess with it a little, though, and I wanted to explain what I did.

I changed the title font, just because I'm a font snob.  I also changed the ovals at the bottom to circles.  It's silly, but I find ovals to be more of an effort to look at.  Like they take your brain a little longer to process or something, I don't know... Then I rounded the corners of the squares ( at 0.2), so they match the curves of the circles.  Then I did the same with the text boxes (but at 0.1).  I also changed the color of the title.  This was just so I could see it easier, because the title and text boxes will change colors for each layout (depending on the background, etc.). Mr. Roberts wants to turn the opacity of the text boxes down so they blend in better, so we'll mess with it when we get to that point.

Anyway, I think that's it! Thanks so much for making the layout in the first place, I think it'll look really great in the yearbook.

More Changes to the Sports layouts.

During editing we discovered a few more issues with the sports layout. Generally pictures can go to the dashed line. However, text should stay inside the magenta line. It is possible to put text outside but we want to avoid it. It is possible for text to be cut off when it is close to the dashed line. In a picture losing a few pixels of it wouldn't really matter.

Anyway, please adjust the following:

1. Change all the captions to 9 point from 10.
2. Move the small circle frame to a top left position of (x=-6.0069, y=5.9653)
3. Move the caption for the small circle to a top left of (x=-7, y=6.1806) size (w=2.2125, h=1.2436)
4. Change the caption to read RIGHT instead of BELOW.
5. Drag the article so that the top left corner aligns with the magenta corner. (x=-7, y=0.5087)
6. Set the article to (w=4.4861, h=5.533)
7. Move the captions and the dots on the right page to align with the magenta line. If you select them all you can move them all at once. Also if you hold down the shift key after they are selected you can move them to the left without moving up or down.
8. I forgot. Also move the dots on the left page to top left position: (x=-6.9792, y=5.9111)
9. Edit/Select All and then Lock Position of all objects.
