How to make Yearbook Style Multiple Anchored Objects?

The project is a yearbook style booklet. Each page has a grid of 20 photos with name caption below each. In the past, I've had to add/delete/move these manually when the roster changes. I thought I could make this easier by grouping each entry, and pasting into a text box which, of course, is threaded. That way, if I change something, all the entries will shift. I set tabs and space after distance. It's about 95% functional.

The problem is, after I do a page, and I see that spacing needs adjustment, I can't do it without throwing the page out of whack. If I move one entry, up or down, it will cause others in the row to move. I can't get the whole row to stay where I put them.

Data Merge is not an option. 

Thanks in advance.

  1. Make a grid on the master of many text frames. For each image a text frame.
  2. Link all frames in athread.
  3. Create a paragraph style: auto leading, starts in the next frame.
  4. Create an object style for the images, define how to anchor, size and how to fit the image in.
  5. Paste the images inside each paragraph.
  6. Return for new images, delete the whole paragraph with image all moves backward.

Depends on the way you want InLine(*) Objects to shift - if left to right - then separate with tabs. 

 

If top to bottom - divide your TextFrame into columns. 

 

And, either way, use Leading in the ParaStyle to control vertical spacing. 

 

(*) There is a significant difference between Anchored and InLine Objects.

Thanks. I think using a paragraph style fixed this for me.
