Can you explain what you mean in more detail? An object can certainly appear on two different pages, or cross the spine and be on two pages at the same time.
In a text flow, I have anchored an object formed by a text frame. The text included in this text frame doesn't fit in one page and I need to expand it into the next page.
There's an example on the attached screenshot. The object on right page should start below the object on left page and flow to the right page. Is this possible?
I think not. Anchored text frames cannot be threaded to other frames. Can you do this with two anchored frames instead?
I'm a little curious why these are Anchored frames, though, rather than a part of the main text flow?
Yes, I can do this splitting manually two anchored frames.
The reason why I need to use these anchored frames is to distinguish them from the rest of the text (i.e. the format of these objects should be: green background inside a frame). However, I want(ed) that these anchored frames could follow the text flow (without having to adjust them manually).
Anyway, thank you for your answers!
Possibly easier with anchored frames (until you run into this), but if you thread frames you could end one frame and start another each time you need to change the background.
@Oscar – If you look more closely to the screenshot the OP has provided, I see a problem with DTPutils' plugin "Paragraph Border".
I do not think, that it can create a background to the effect of something like the construction I was able to create in the following movie:
I was able to anchor a threaded text frame to another threaded text frame by scripting. This is surprisingly very easy.
But if other factors come into play—like automatic height of a text frame—the whole construction is a bit instable and will very likely crash InDesign.
I think, dtputils' plugin is not able to do something like this.
Here a screenshot from InDesign CC-2014.2 where the "Paragraph Border" plugin is in action:
One paragraph split to two different text frames.
You cannot define the bottom of a split background different (eg. no rounded corners) than the end of the paragraph background.
thank you for your information about some limits of plug-in "paragraf border".
however this plug in may be useful in many cases and I think, the future versions may be better.
@Oscar – I tried something with a combination of Paragraph Rules above/below in combination with a special Line Style together with the option the plugin provides. But unfortunately I cannot give a good, flexible solution to the problem. What seems to be possible is to get a rounded corner on top of the paragraph. But this would imply a method, that is not flexible for frame or column width. So I ruled this all out and decided not to show bits and pieces.
