    Problem with autoflow + multiple columns

    lucaspergrafico

      Hi,

       

      I'm working with a 5 columns document, 3 are for body text and 2 are for margin notes.

       

      When I try to import a document from MS Word (using Place) and then create the textframe by holding Shift and grabing a box (which would activate the autoflow), it doesn't work! None columns nor new pages are created. The textframe simply gets the little red plus square which indicates I have to create more frames.

       

      However, when I don't grab any box (simply click on a single column holding Shift), it does create all the frames and pages I need, but in single columns.

       

      Any ideas?

       

      Here are two images to illustrate the situation:

      Thanks.
