Continue overflowing text in another text box?
« on: May 30, 2013, 11:52:48 pm »
Hi.

Is there a way to make overflowing text in one text box continue in another one?
I could do this in InDesign but I can't seem to find any feature like it in Scribus.

Have a nice day, and thanks in advance!

Easy. Select the first text frame, then press the "Link Text Frames" icon (green arrow between two grey boxes), then select the text frame you want the text to continue into.

Alternatively, instead of pressing the icon, you can press the "N" key, or use "Item -> Link Text Frames".
