Ability to combine multiple text frames.

Recommended Posts

Finding I occasionally run into situations where upon importing or copy/pasting some artwork from another app (Comic Life, OmniGraffle, Illustrator, Preview/PDF, etc) I run into situations where what was once a continuous flow of text has been broken down into individual text frames. Sometimes this division is based on single lines, other times individual characters. Having the ability to select all of the related text frames and combine them into a new text frame would be really helpful. Of course determining what order the frames go in is a little complicated, I wonder if a 'best guess' based on the reading order of the document (ie: top down, left to right for western languages) would give a 'good enough' result in most circumstances with the ability to quickly copy/paste move text around in the combined frame after allowing users to fix any errors that may have crept in.
