I'm wanting to make layered "cards" for print design (think of a tabbed index card but the tab goes the whole width) they'll be layered on 8 1/2x 11. Each card maybe 6in wide.
The thing I wish I could do is keep the heading (top tab of the card) a fixed height while letting the body vary in height based on content.
I can do it with multiple objects obviously but drop shadows get messed a little up so I'm stuck with manually making each height I need and grouping them.
Is there any way to set the header height but be able to adjust the overall height for each different card I need?
I'm ultimately doing this in indesign but illustrator would be fine too
