Anchoring Linked Frames or ICML Files???

May 22, 2012 1:57 PM

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?

    What version of ID are you using?

    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.

    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?
