You'd have to set up the flow "from scratch." Make each photo/text set a group, then anchor the groups in threaded, multi-column text frames.
For a visual aid, see my answer to the same scenario in post #5 of this thread.
The solution to this problem lies in making each head shot and info beneath it into separate grouped objects. Let's call them Head Shot Groups. Once you have these groups, draw linked (threaded) text frames for each row. Then copy/paste each group into the threaded text frames, one at a time. Use a Text Wrap on the right side of each group to create some spacing between groups. When you're done, you'll see how easy it is to add or delete Head Shot Groups into your layout. As Head Shot Groups are added or deleted the other HS groups will adjust (i.e., move left or right) accordingly.
Thanks for you quick responses. Question, since each one of my groups are indesign files, will that work too? Each individual headshot with the info beneath is it's own Indesign file. In other words, I'm pasting and indesign files within an indesign file. I do this because I make credit updates to each file so whenever I open and old file, I hit update and the credits auto update.
I'm pasting and indesign files within an indesign file.
I'll assume you're Placing InDesign files, rather than pasting, right?
That's actually better in terms of getting each headshot/info group to act as a single, anchored entity. So yes, set up your threaded text frames and anchor each Placed InDesign heashot/info group in the flow. (This can be done either by Edit > Cut / Edit Paste at an active insertion point in the text flow, or by invoking the Place command directly at the active insertion point, or a mix of both.)
I actually drag and drop each indesign file from MINI BRIDGE onto the Indesign file. I have about 1,000 individual Indesign files I work with. Do you know if there's a way to Edit > Cut Paste at an active insertion point in the text flow from MINI BRIDGE? Or is there an easier way to Edit > Cut Paste multiple files onto Indesign?
Before recommending anything, I'd like to know, how the data will be imported to InDesign.
Suggesting a group of one image plus a text frame anchored is a good one, but could be optimized, I think.
Here a screenshot of the idea John and Scott are proposing:
(I hope I'm not wrong)
The important details are:
Paragraph style holding the anchor:
Begin of paragraph: Next Column
Anchor position of group anchored:
x is relative to anchor character
y is relative to baseline
One important question is: How to control the height of each text frame.
Maximum and/or minimum values. I have a few ideas for that, but the best implementation will depend on the actual data flowing in.
