I've got a five-column text frame and some of the contained paragraph styles are set to span two columns. The text will auto-flow into the '3rd' column but it won't let me force a column break if I have several short, linked frames. Why is this? Logic says it should allow me to break into the 3rd column and, force break into the next frame as well (the latter does work).
This is the same problem but in a different part of the document. A column break inserted in the list of speakers doesn't jump the rest of the speakers to the next column but to the next frame. Why is this? The numeric-pad return and shift+numeric-pad return seem to have the same effect rather than the expected one.
