Is there anyway to anchor linked frames or ICML files in InDesign? I would like to re-purpose some content from other files and anchor the text into the text frame so the content flows around it. I notice when I try to cut-n-paste to anchor, the linking goes away. Any thoughts?
Anchored text frames cannot be threaded, if that's what you mean, but perhaps the Linked Story concept would help you. You can select a story and place it as a linked story in another position in the same doc, or in a different doc, and if you edit the original the links should update to match.
Thanks for your attention. No, I'm not trying to thread a text frame, I just want to place a text frame with say a warning or caution anchored into another text frame at a relevant location. This way if I later decide to update the warning/caution it will be updated in all documents. Unfortunately, when I've tried to anchor the linked text frame into another document (at the relevant location), it breaks the link. I can drop it into another document without anchoring it, but of course when text is added to the text above the linked text frame, the placed frame will not move with the relevant text. I had hoped it would work the same way as anchoring an image frame in a document, but it doesn't seem to be working out that way (or I'm doing something wrong).
I see what you're saying about placing it in a separate frame in a different document, but again, it won't flow with the text.
Thanks again for your insight!
Someon else asked a very similar question day before yesterday, with pretty much the same answer. I haven't played with linked stories to any great extent. Are you saying they lose the link when anchored?
