Can't Fill Threaded Frames with Placeholder Type

Dec 30, 2012 1:00 PM

Hi,

 

I have InDesign CS6 and am working on a 10 page document with facing pages (Primary Txt Frames - unchecked). I manually created a text frame on page 1, added a chapter number near the top and some placeholder type below it. After formatting both with separate paragraph styles, I wanted to add more p.h. to the remaining 9 pages. First I created the txt frames for each page and then threaded them.  Unfortunately when I tried to fill them with more p.h. text, InD only fills one page at a time. Is there an easy way to fill threaded frames in one go at this point? I think I'm having this issue beacause I'm using more than one P. Style, but maybe someone can shed some light on this? (Smart reflow is turned on).

 

kind regards,

Chris

    If they were properly threaded it should fill with text. As a test, turn on text threads and select one of the frames. You should see lines from out ports to in ports.
