  2. I frequently do newsletters where text must flow across more than one frame to avoid making pages look like tombstones. That process is fairly straightforward in AP, but it is a challenge to provide information to the reader to tell them where the next frame is located. It is possible to, in the text menu, select insert, and then fields, and then next frame page number, preceded by the text "continued on page ....". That does not work well unless done at the very end of the process, since any addition of text or graphics in the initial frame can easily move the text and the next frame page number to the next frame. A work around is to create a small text frame just below the content text frame and enter the "continued..." text followed by the field. Unfortunately, the insert reference will not be to the correct page, unless you have also created an equivalent text frame immediately above the next content text frame and linked the two "continued" frames. Is there some way to embed a text frame within another text frame so that the link to the target frame can be observed when adding the index field? (This was a feature available in PPlus.)
