    InDesign Placed Text Linking Issue

    lousiaf95408512

      Hi - I've just recently updated to CS6 and am having an issue with linking placed text files.

       

      When I place the Word Doc into the InDesign file initially (not in position), the link to the original document is present in the 'Links' window as expected. However, I need to transfer this text into another text box on the page and of course when I do so the link is removed.

       

      Therefore, I tried placing the Word Doc directly onto the page in position (I have an autoflow setup that I need the text to run through) however when I do this no link appears in the window. To clarify, I have three separate text boxes setup on my master page that I need this linked text to flow through.

       

      Any suggestions how to solve this? I have run through the preferences and ensured everything is as it should be.

       

      Thanks!
