I'm working on many pages with sets of 6 frames placed in a specific way (see image)
Sometimes I need to add a new frame in the middle somewhere, for example between frame 1 and 2. Currently, in order to do that, the only way I know is to move each frame individually so I was wondering if there is some way to set it up so that they will move automatically? (in the example, frame 2 would move to frame 3's place, frame 3 to frame 4's etc.)
I have tried various things such as using tables or nested styles, but I haven't found anything that works. It would save me a lot of time and trouble so I hope someone knows of a good way 🙂
Thank you in advance!
Only script can do this. Or U can join all frames into one thread and add a table in the middle. The rest of tables would move into next text frames.
Thank you, I will try this tomorrow when I'm at my computer again 🙂

You could make each frame an anchored text box, and set up the main text flow to allow their positions to shift. It would be a little fragile but should work. You could also autonumber the title paragraphs so they would remain in order.
Work with hidden characters turned on so you know exactly where the main flow paragraphs and box anchors are.
This sounds like a useful solution. How do you make a frame anchored and is it possible to do so with both text and picture frames?
A full tutorial might help here, but basically:
As noted, there are some complex aspects here about how to anchor objects and get them to stay and flow in certain ways. But that's the basics.
