Chapter 5. Text Flow > To insert a “Continued on” command:

To insert a “Continued on” command:

1.
Choose the Rectangle text box tool. Or if you want to get fancy, choose a Bézier text box or text path tool.

2.
Create a separate, small box or path that overlaps the main text box of the story, and keep it selected.

3.
Choose Item > Runaround (Cmd-T/Ctrl-T).

4.
Choose Type: Item.

5.
Click OK.

6.
Choose the Content tool.

7.
Type any desired text into the small box, such as “Continued on page,” or use a graphic symbol, such as an arrow. The keystrokes for entering Zapf Dingbat characters are in Appendix A.

8.
Press Cmd-4/Ctrl-4 to insert the Next Box Page Number command . Don't enter the actual page number! It will appear automatically.

Figure 2. If the characters <None> appear instead of a page number, either the text box or path containing the Previous or Next Box Page Number command is not overlapping a linked text box, or the text box it overlaps is not linked to a box on another page.


Figure 3. You can create a jump line on a text path.


TIP

Use the down arrow on the keyboard to jump from the end of one box to the beginning of the next box in the chain (or the up arrow to go backwards).
