Hi,

 

I'm composing my second book in InDesign and I'm wondering if there is an easy way to automatically add pages and textframes when I'm transfering the text to InDesign?

I've tried to search the self-study site but found nothing.

Click on this red plus in the last text frame.Then go to the next empty page, hold down Shif key and click. Text will fill any empty pages and new pages will be added automatically.

I don't fully understand. Do you mean text form .doc file? Drop file to InD and try Shift+click.

I use copy/cut and paste for transfering the text, and that works fine when there is only a couple of pages. I usually add a few pages and frames in InDesign and paste the text in. No problems. Works like a dream 🙂

However, I have not yet found a way to automatically add new pages, if I've previously didn't add enough.

Thus this make any sense?
