 text frames with text are threaded over several pages  in a document , and i didn't  paste data while holding shift key or using text frame option auto text reflow , i simple copy from word and paste and then manually relink text frame by using mouse loaded functinon,  but when i am deleting page from middle of document the last page of the document is deleting  and text frame of last page text goes overflow , if i unbreak text thread in all document , then  i can easliy delete any middle  page , why its happening like this . ..

If I'm understanding: If you have text threaded over several pages, deleting a page in the middle doesn't delete the text on that page. It just forces that text to the next text frame. The result being that the text on the last page will overset (because you have less space into which the text flows).

As @Steve Werner already explained - TextFrame on the page is just a "container" - if it's threaded/linked with other "container(s)" - then when you delete page and this "container" - its contents will flow to the next "container".

Hi @rehana36276218, you already have the correct answer, but I just wanted to elucidate:

 

When you delete a text frame from a thread (meaning text flowing inside more than one text frame), you are deleting *just the frame*. You are not affecting the story at all, except that now the story has one less text frame to fit into.

 

So if you want to delete a text frame, first carefully delete all the text from that text frame, then delete the text frame itself. It may take some practice.
