Knock-Out Text to Image in InDesign

Kitten Text

Like the other InDesign text trick, but this one knock-out live text to reveal the background image.

  1. Create a text box, type something in it.
  2. Set the opacity of the text box to zero.
  3. Create another box for it to be knocked out of (solid color is preferrable).
  4. Group the two objects together, and select ‘knock out group’ from the effects panel.
  5. the zero opacity text should now be transparent, allowing any background image to show through.
  6. Text remains editable.

    Just make sure that your text box with transparent writing in it has been sent to the front before you group the two boxes together
