Hide Text Threads

Text threads are Illustrator’s way to show which text boxes are linked, allowing text to flow from one text box to the next. When you create text threads by using the Selection tool (V) and clicking on a text frame’s Out Port icon (the tiny box near the bottom right of the text block), and then clicking on the In Port icon (the tiny box near the top left) of another text frame, Illustrator helps by showing a line that starts at the Out Port icon and ends at the In Port icon of the next text block. While this can be helpful to see where the text is flowing to, it can also be distracting; so to temporarily hide the thread lines for your selected text boxes, press Command-Shift-Y (PC: Control-Shift-Y). To show the thread lines, press the same keys again.
