How to fill several pages easily with text?

Recommended Posts

Now I am working like this: there is a bunch of text. I am creating a master page with a text field. Then I estimate how much pages I probably need. At the first page in the text field I paste the complete text. After that with the text flow tool I let the text flow in the text field on the second page and so on, and so on till all the pages hold the complete text.

There must be an easier way to do that, but I can't find how...

Don't add any extra pages, just paste in the text on the first page and shift-click the linking arrow.

This will automatically add as many pages as you need, and link the text for you.

You do not need to create the text frame on the master page. If you have all text you need to have imported just place the first text frame on the first page of the document, make the text frame the size is will be in the document, and then autoflow creating extra pages needed by clicking the flow icon red triangle on the bottom right corner of the text frame while holding down the Shift key.
