    Deleting pages from an old catalog document

    mizquel

      I am editing an old indesign catalog file. I think everything is linked together. I'm trying to get rid of old images and content. Whats the easiest way to do that without messing the entire document up? I already tried deleting pages, and it seems like it messes up the doc. I need help!

          If the text is threaded through the document, you can use a script that comes with InDesign to break it up into text boxes. It's call splitstory

          It will break out your text into its individual frames so that when you delete a page, its text doesn't flow onto another page.

           

          A few notes from the script

           

          -To use the script, select a text frame, then run the script.

          --Note: Any overset text at the end of the story will be deleted.

          --Note: Hyphenation points between text frames will not be retained.
