Help Error: Flow Options


Recommended Posts

This bug report applies to Windows and the online Help, and probably the Mac Help.

In the Help section on Paragraph Formatting, the various options that are mentioned include:
 

Quote

Flow options—Flow options—controls where on the page your paragraph starts and inter-paragraph relationships.

However, the link leads to a description of how to link text frames together, and how to more generally flow text between frames. It does not cover the specific Flow options (Widows, Orphans, Keep Together, etc.)

There is also a separate mention of Widow and Orphan Control, but those are really suboptions of the Flow Options. None of these options are described in any detail.

I agree - the SEE ALSO ref to Flowing options is misleading so i've removed that.
While the flow options are not explained in detail they are covered explicitly and correctly in the Paragraph panel topic. Otherwise we would have duplicate paragraphs.html and paragraphPanel.html topics.. 

Thanks. I agree that the Paragraph Panel topic covers it adequately. Perhaps the Flow Options section of the Paragraph Formatting topic could specifically mention the description in the Paragraph Panel topic?
