Linking

I need to introduce a concept here that is crucial to working with text boxes: linking. Links, sometimes known as chains, are the connections between text boxes that allow text to flow from one into the other. You can have as many text boxes linked up as you like. There are two ways to link text boxes together: have QuarkXPress do it for you automatically, or do it yourself manually. I cover automatic text links in Chapter 4, Building a Document. I cover manual linking here.
