Working with text – ask for advice related to workflow habits

Hi there,

 

I am asking for advice: I am going to do a catalogue which will consist of cells like the one IMG 01:

 

IMG 01

My question is: The text below the image consists of three text-blocks {Name, Specification, Colors, Sizes}  each formated by a different style.Is in general better habit to keep all the tree columns below the image in one text-frame as on image IMG 02? { Text-frames are highlighted blue.}

 

IMG 02 – Two text-frames

Or is better to create separate text-frame for each item? IMG 03:

 

IMG 03 – 4 text-frames

Thank you for your time guys!

    I would go even further, and have all the text and the photo in one box

    You can paste the image frame into the text frame, and then it will stay with the text.

    You could also make each item as an individual table inside a running text frame. That would make it easier to flow and rearrange them in an item is added or deleted at the last minute.

    Looks like a good candidate for Data Merge, if all the info is stored in a sytem that could output delimited text.

    Getting from ID back to XLS or delimited text is pretty tough

    that would complicate things, but if the 2-image items were the exactly as wide as 2 1-image one plus the gutter, span columns on the double items might work. I haven't had time to test this, but its worth a try.
