I have been asked by an editor to format a story I wrote into InDesign. Is there a way to put continuous text by adding it into a master page, or is it better to add the boxes one-by-one and use the pink plus to continue the text into the next page?
I'm trying to figure out the most efficient way to do this.
Thanks in advance.
You can select a Primary Text Frame when you create your InDesign document and use Shift when you Place the Word document into the InDesign document.
In addition to using primary frames on a master page, you have three flow options when you import a story from Word. Use any of these three techniques on the body pages:
When I demonstrate these text flows to my students, they always think that they are going to only use the last one because it's so quick (one Shift + click to place the entire story). But the other two are important for shorter documents and multi story documents where you want to be able to control exactly where the text is going – skipping a column, starting partway down a column, or skipping several pages.
Thank you so much!
