Chapter 5. Text Flow

Chapter 5. Text Flow

In the previous chapter, you learned how to get text into a box. The next step is to learn how to route overflow text from box to box and from page to page. If the Auto Page Insertion option is on in Edit > Preferences > Preferences > Document– General, and your document contains an automatic text box, and then text is imported or input into an automatic text box, new pages will be added, if necessary, to contain any overflow text and text boxes will be linked from page to page. Auto page insertion is appropriate for documents in which a story flows consecutively from one page to the next, as in a book or booklet. A document can contain up to 2,000 pages. Note: For documents that contain multiple stories that may flow onto non-consecutive pages, as in a newsletter, manual linking is a better choice (see page 77).

What if

If you didn't turn on Automatic Text Box in the New Document dialog box but later on you decide you need an auto text box, you can add it manually. See the instructions on page 238.
