Put it on the Pasteboard

Page Layout Trivia and Tip

Pasting Without Sticky Fingers

Many page layout programs use a pasteboard analogy. Your page sits in the middle of the pasteboard. You can move blocks of text and images off the page and leave them sitting on the pasteboard. You can pan or zoom out to view what’s on the pasteboard. It’s a convenient holding area while playing with your design and it’s one way that desktop publishing software differs from word processing software.
