    Single text frame to multiple text frames?

    gbloomdesign

      I'm working on revamping our catalogs, the current catalogs have one long text box down each page with 8-10 paragraphs (item descriptions) inside. The new layout calls for 1 paragraph per text box. Think of it as small descriptions under each item. A lot of our items are carry overs from last season and I am trying to find a quick way to take the long text box with multiple paragraphs and convert them down to individual text boxes. I don't want the boxes to be linked either. Any help would be great! Thanks in advance!

          You might want to ask this over in scripting, but if I had to do it manually I would start by moving the bottoom of the frame on each page up so only the first paragraph shows, then click the outport and draw a new frame for thenext paragraph, and repeat down the page until each paragraph is in its own threaded frame. The run the SplitStrory script inthe sample scripts to un-thread them.
