Chapter 1. Top Ten “Gotchas” for QuarkXP... > “How am I supposed to link text boxe...

“How am I supposed to link text boxes together without a Link tool?”

In QuarkXPress, you use the Link and Unlink tools in the Tool palette to control text threading. InDesign uses the PageMaker method: Each text frame has an in port and an out port that you can see when you select the frame with the Selection or Direct Select tool (see Figure 1-2). To link two frames together, click on one of the ports with one of the selection tools, and then click anywhere on top of another frame. (If you click on the in port first, you’re linking to this frame; if you click on the out port first, you’re linking from this frame to another one.) We cover text threading in more detail in Chapter 20.

Figure 1-2. In InDesign, the in and out ports (for text threading) are in the upper-left and lower-right corners of text frames.
