Linking text boxes

When you have text that needs to flow from box to box or column to column, you can easily link the text boxes so that the text flows appropriately when you make changes to it. You might have already created a text box in the task “Add new task,” earlier in this section. If not, follow the steps in that task to add the first text box to your page. Enter enough text that not all of it can be displayed in that first text box.

  1. Create a second text box into which the overflow text will flow.

  2. Click the first text box to select it.

    The overflow indicator appears, letting you know that the text box contains more text than it can fit.

  3. Click the overflow indicator.

    The pointer changes to resemble a pitcher.
