Working with Text Flow
As mentioned earlier (see page 53), if text overflows its text frame, you can link the text into another frame.
To link text between frames:
- Click the overflow symbol. The cursor changes to the load text cursor .
- Move the cursor over to the frame you want to flow the text into. The cursor changes to the link text cursor .
- Click in the text frame. The link indicators show that the text in the frame flows to or from another frame .
To change the link between frames:
- Click the link indicator in the frame where you want to break the link. The cursor turns into a link text cursor.
- Click in a new text frame to flow the text into a new frame.
