    Automatically add text frames and/or pages

    salvi_

      Greetings,

      I would like to know if it's possible for InDesign (automatically or via scripting) to add columns and/or pages if the content exceeds the text frame width/height.

      The content is imported via the Import XML option. My layout consists of 6 columns per page. When I import the xml in the gray text frame, the frame expands in height overlapping the next text frame instead of "pushing" it, as I want it too. The same goes for the other text frames.

       

       

      Is it possible to automatically add text frames to fit the content and/or pages?
