Inserting Text Frames by pasting but text is flowing only on one side of the facing page


Recommended Posts

Hi I am facing a strange problem. I watched an Affinity tutorial lately, where the instructor mentioned a neat trick to paste a large volume of text using a short-key Holding Shift & Then Click The Text Overflow blue triangle when pasting a large volume of text in a single frame. By doing that the documents automatically get populated one by one till the end.  I thought this would be a huge time saver. 

I created a new document and a default master page (facing pages). This is particularly useful when handling large volume of texts running into 100+ pages like publishing a book.

But when I am doing (i.e. clicking on the over flow triangle icon. that the text is flowing BUT it is only populating only 1 side/ 1 face of each spread and linking them down till the end of the document. 

How can I avoid this can any body help? This is also happening when I am NOT using the Shift + Triangle command BUT pasting it manually after creating text frames on a master page.

Am I doing anything wrong?

If there are any experts here kindly suggest

Thanks a lot

Som

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums.

Presumably you are creating a Text Frame on the left side of your Master Page, and another on the right side. You need to link them before text will flow properly.

Once you've created the two Text Frames, click on the linking triangle on the lower-right side of the frame on the left page. Then click the frame on the right page. That will link them, and after that when you create pages from that Master, and flow text, it will flow correctly.
