Placing and Flowing Text

Take Control of Show Import Options

It seems that whenever I want to see the Import Options dialog box of the text file I'm about to Place, I forget to turn on the Show Import Options checkbox and have to re-Place the file, this time carefully clicking the checkbox; yet when I don't want to see the dialog box; the checkbox happens to be checked and bang, there it is, the Import Options dialog box that I don't need and have to click out of. Is this some sort of practical joke?


Yes, it is. Isn't it funny? No, seriously, just keep the checkbox turned off. InDesign maintains the most recent “on/off” state of the checkbox in subsequent trips to the Place dialog box, so you should only have to do this once per document.
