A locked frame displays blue handles, whereas an unlocked frame displays green handles.

Resize a frame

To resize a frame, select any of the green handles and drag to resize the frame. If the frame is locked (has blue handles), you cannot resize it. 

Note: Do not go past the original black margins that outline the template when re-sizing the frames. 

Draw a frame

You can add as many additional frames to the current frame layout as you want.

Complete the following steps to add a frame to the drawing layout:

1. In the Drawing Layout ribbon, click Add Frame.
