So I have a document where I used Data Merge to input 300 images onto each spread. Now that I have a 300-page document, I need to flow in text. I cannot use Smart Text Reflow because this creates and adds new pages, when I just need the overflowing text to simply link to the next (already-existing) text frames.
Is there a way to do this using a script so I don't have to manually connect text frames? I don't know how to write a script from scratch but am familiar with running a few to help my workflow.
You did not specify script language. Here is a simple script written in AppleScript that connects text frames in a document in the order in which they were created. This works using the id of the text frames. You will want to make sure the text frame ids are returned in the correct order (depends on preference settings). The variable at the end of the script (frameList) will allow you to verify the ids of the text frames. If the numbers are in the correct order, remove the (* and *) and run the script again to link the frames.
