i have a 63 page layout with one long thread frame going from page to page. The layout has 4 sections. The client wants to break up this one layout into 4 different files for each section.
How do i unlink the thread frames link between sections, but keep the thread links i have within sections? i tried the scrip that comes with indesign but that breaks everything on its own text frames per page. And i need to be able to add and remove text within sections as needed and have the ability to let it reflow.
i used that one. but it splits every page into its own frame ( all 63 page become 63 independent text frames). and i need to keep the inside sections together/threaded.
OK, just re-checked it again, and can confirm: script works exactly as advertised. Did you read a description?
Your selected frame will be unlinked from its previous frame. But the links from your selection to the end will be kept.
Note the script has no interface at all. Just be careful to select right text frame before running it.
What I would do:
1. Go to first text frame of chapter 4. Select it, run script.
2. Go to first text frame of chapter 3. Select it, run script.
3. Go to first text frame of chapter 2. Select it, run script.
yep, i did that
before script (this is one section i want to keep together, i select the first frame:
run the scrip, every box is now independent:
Its doing it but for the entire 63 page layout.
From your screen shot, I see you're using completely different script. No surprise you get different results.
Your applescript is just intended to work that way!
