Chapter 10. Whose Line Is It Anyway? ...... > Thread Text into a New Box

Thread Text into a New Box

If you want to create threaded text (meaning you want to create linked text boxes that contain overflow text) and you want to ensure that the next text box is the same size as the first one, it’s pretty simple. Select the text frame with the Selection tool (V), and click on the text frame’s Out Port icon (located near the bottom-right corner) to load the overflow text—the cursor will change to the Loaded Text icon, which looks like a tiny newspaper page. Then click where you want the second text box to appear. The text is threaded into a new text box, and that box will be exactly the same size as the first text box in the thread. If you want the new text box to be a different size, click-and-drag to draw a box in the size you want while you have the Loaded Text icon showing as your cursor. When you release the mouse button, your text will flow into the box you created.
