Tutorial for Horizontal Flows 035, 036, 037, and 038 – Top Split

Using the Horizontal Flows 035, 036, 037, and 038

These series have a top slice that can hold a small amount of identifying text, e.g., phase number and name, a time period. The bottom portion of the flow segment can contain a longer description. The example to the right uses HF035. HF036 is the same except it has wings.

HF037 and HF038 have cutouts at the beginning of the flow, and HF038 has wings. The cut on the left-hand side of the framework implies that some force is either contributing to the flow or driving it forward. Place text, a graphic, or an image there to illustrate the correct concept.

Customizing the Horizontal Flows

Adjust size

If you want to change the size/shape of the PowerFramework, be sure to group it and resize the entire group. Once resized, ungroup to proceed with other customizations. If you are using segments from other series, as mentioned above, bring them all onto your page and size them together so that they will fit together perfectly. You can also adjust the space between the segments by ungrouping and nudging them.


Color

Select color from your document's color palette or a complimentary color so that the PowerFramework will reflect the color scheme of the rest of your document. Select "No line" if you want to eliminate the outline of the object, or change the line point size if you want thinner or heaver lines. Notice that each segment can be colored individually so that highlighting can be easily achieved.


3D variations

3D isn't recommended for this framework because there are too many closely aligned pieces. Applying 3D inhibits the pieces from appearing distinct.


Shadows

Shadows can be used if the shadow cast is very close to the element. Pay attention to layering: top slice should be in the back.


Gradients, patterns, and pictures

Gradients, patterns, and pictures can be added as fills from the "Fill Effects" menu. Gradients, when carefully used, can also add motion to a flow such this. When using gradients like this, you can eliminate the line, because the pieces become distinct from each other.


Animations

You can introduce the content below the framework in animated reveals, or you can reveal the segments of the framework and the column of content below on clicks.
