Working with fonts in InDesign is slightly different than using word processing software such as Word.
But how do you stop accidentally and annoyingly selecting it whenever you want to move or change another element on the page?
There are two ways to lock a background image for this purpose. One is to use locking Indesign layers, and the other is to use master pages.
Using InDesign layers to lock a background image First create an Indesign document. I've given mine 5mm bleed so the background image bleeds off the edge of the page. Place your background image and snap the outer edges of the bounding box to the bleed guides.
Open the InDesign Transparency Palette. Once you've finished with the Indesign Transparency Palette, close it down and lock the layer containing the image by clicking on the little check box in the Indesign Layers Palette just to the left of the layer name, and to the right of the little eye which toggles the layer visibility.
This is the layer that will contain all the text, images and other elements of the layout. As long as the bottom layer containing the background image is locked, it'll stay in position.
Using InDesign master pages to lock a background image The master pages within layout programs like Indesign and Quark XPress enable you to reproduce permanent features of a document layout like page numbers and other repetitive design features on every page of a document without having to recreate them for every single page.
In InDesign, everything on the master pages is locked by default.
This can be overridden at page level if required as is demonstrated further down. In Quark, nothing that appears on the master pages is locked, so you need to be more careful not to move elements around by mistake.
Anything that appears on the master pages you can have different master page designs applied to different document pages will appear on every page which has that master page applied. For example, below you can see the master page is called A-Master.
The only page in the Pages Palette has an 'A' in the middle of the thumbnail. This means that the A-Master is applied to it, so a background image that appears on the A-Master will also appear on every page with an 'A' showing on the thumbnail.
Double click the A-Master thumbnail in the Pages Palette. Place the background image and use the InDesign Transparency Palette to knock it back as described earlier. Then double click on the page 1 thumbnail to return to the main layout.
You can now place whatever elements you like over the background image and you won't be able to select, move or alter it, even though the layer that it's on isn't locked. If you do want to release the background image on a page, select the relevant page thumbnail in the Pages Palette. This will release everything on the master page on the selected pages only.How to Wrap a Single Word Around the Perspective Grid Planes in Adobe Illustrator - YouTube.

Written by Steve Patterson. Photoshop makes it easy to rotate, flip and scale entire words or lines of text in a document, but what if we want to transform only a single letter in a word, or transform different letters differently, rotating some, flipping others horizontally or vertically, and scaling others?

I feel as if since it's kind of hard to navigate around InDesign, I still haven't been able to do that everything I can possibly do on the software. For instance, if I want to create a quarter-circle, its almost impossible for me to.
