Hello Ladies (and guys),

I know this isn't a 'Scrapping' question,, but I figured someone here would be able to help me (you're so much nicer than the rest of the internet :) ). I'm trying to do some stuff in InDesign CS5 and I'm sick of resizing and retyping text boxes. I know there's a function in MS Publisher that allows you to link text boxes so that once one fills up, you can just keep typing and it'll automatically 'flow' into the next box. I'm wondering if anyone knows a way to do this in InDesign. It seems like a pretty basic function.

Thanks in advance.

Ah Ha! Figured it out. If anyone else is wondering, it's pretty simple. Just click on that little red '+' that shows up when the text doesn't fit, then click on the next text box you want to fill.
