Tip 5: Especially nice: a break in the frame with headlines or short texts!
Insert a text box, set the background color to white (or another color: toolbar “background color of the text field”) and drag then to the desired location on the frame. More space on the edge you generate by a corresponding number of spaces left and right, or by centering the text field.
