Chapter 26. Inserting Text Boxes > Linking Text Between Text Boxes

Linking Text Between Text Boxes

When you want text to flow continuously from one part of your document to the next, even if those parts are not adjacent or on the same page, you can use linked text boxes. When you link text boxes, text inserted in one automatically flows into the next. Conversely, when you remove text from one, text flows in from linked text boxes to fill the empty space. Linking text boxes is an excellent way to design publications like newsletters and magazines, especially when text may need to "jump" from one part of the publication to another.

You can link as many text boxes as you want to create what Word calls a "story," and you can have as many stories as you want in a document. You can't link text boxes between documents.
