    Delete a threaded frame in a document

    Pool Mejhad

      Hi,

      i'm working with indesign since 2 weeks and i can't understand why seems to be impossible to delete a threaded text frames without it flows into the next frame in succession.

      In a impaginated document for example, i don't want that the text flows over the others pages, because i just want the text frame to be discarded, so the next pages remains correct and with the same settings.

       

      I've read a lot in the manual but can't find something about this.

      Thanks in advance,

      Mehjad

          That's the way it works. If you want to delete the text in a threaded frame along with the frame you must select and delete that text using the text tool, either before or after removing the frame.

            Let me add that there is a sample script that is included with recent versions of InDesign that will isolate a single frame and remove it, and the content, from the thread, which might be an easier method fot you -- select the frame, runt the script, then delete. The script is called BreakFrame.jsx and you should find it in the Scripts panel under Application > Samples folder > javascript folder. Double-click it to run, or assign a keyboard shortcut to it.
