In short: Is there a way to add a linked textframe with predefined geometricBounds to a selected textframe?
For a newspaper, I have to perform these repetitive tasks:
I've already set up a script that cleans up the text and prepares it for further use.
I would like the script to add the needed linked textframes.
Many thanks ahead

Yes, there's a way.
Adds and returns a new text frame at the defined coordinates.
textFrame.previousTextFrame = oldTF
makes that new text frame connected to the previous.
It took some time to make it work, but it does the job!
You're welcome. Newspapering is fertile ground for automation and where I cut my teeth on this stuff. Lots of trial and error!
Indeed, it's not just about layouting as quick as possible, but also maintaining flexibility for last minute adjustments. Thanks again!
