The text marquee's position is a little unpredictable when arrowing up/down to next/previous text frame. I.e. it wont keep it's horizontal position on the row.

I'm struggling with linked text frames, too. I'm experimenting with a book Ive already published on InDesign.

Do I have to link each of the frames separately to the preceding one, all 300-400 pages? In ID you can hold a combination of keys down and the text just flows through all the pages once you click the little link on the right of the first text frame.

But I welcome Publisher's arrival at last.

It should preserve distance from the left column edge. Is that not what you are seeing?

In Publisher, Shift-Click should Autoflow, creating as many pages and frames as needed for the text.

OK, Dave, that seems to work, thanks.

I find the connecting lines rather obtrusive – if they have to be there I'd suggest a much lighter colour. It's not quite intuitive. But I get the impression that things like guide lines and so on are the sort of little touches you're still working on.

Try unticking View > Show Text Flow.

Yes it should. Now the marquee jumps to either the beginning or the end of the line. (When moving from one text frame to a linked frame.)
