    Linked text with automated page breaks/formatting changes across threaded text frames?

    calebe86509478

      I have a word doc whose contents I want to link to a spread of three threaded text frames.  I want the following to happen automatically so I don't need to make edits in Indesign after updating the link:

       

      • I want the paragraph/character styles to be dictated by the frame the text is in.
      • I also want frame breaks to be automatically applied at specified points in the text.  The number of paragraphs between each of these specified points may change, but their locations are identifiable via a GREP style search.

       

      Is this possible?  I have a lot of these documents I want to link in such a way, which is why I'm trying to create an automatable standard.
