Flowing Text

After making your import choices for one of the formats above, click Open. Then, one of two things happens: If you don’t have a frame selected, you’ll see the loaded text cursor (also called the “Place gun”), which changes depending on where the cursor is and what modifier keys you’re holding down (see below).

If you have a frame (either text or graphics) selected and the Replace Selected Item option was turned on, InDesign fills the frame with the imported text. (If this was a mistake, just choose Undo Replace from the Edit menu, or press Command-Z/Ctrl-Z, which reloads the “Place gun,” letting you place the text elsewhere.)
