I have a word document with graphics in it. It is an 8.5x11 size document.
I want to flow the text and graphics into an indesign document that measures 5.5x8.5 in size.
When I try to place the document then shift click, it will not work.
It only flows 3 blank pages and stops. The word document is 250 pages.
I tried to flow the word document into and 8.5x11 indesign document and it worked but it will not work if I flow the word document into and 5.5 x 8.5 document? WHY? Please help.
Most likely it's stopping at the point where either a line of text cannot break and is too wide for the frame, or there is a graphic too big for the page.
Take a look at the story in Story Editor (Edit > Edit in Story Editor...) and check what is at the start of the overset.
