I would like to suggest the possibility to automatically create new pages when text exceed the text frame. Indesign does that with a master text frame you can access from within any given page based on the particular master.

In Publisher, when the text has overflowed you can shift-click on the triangle on the lower right of the Text Frame.

Yes, but I often paste a lot of text, wich means a lot of manual page-adds and shift-clicks. The trick from Indesign are that you create a text frame in the master, switch to the page, activate the master text frame and when you then paste text Ind. automatically add pages with linked text frames displaying all content immediately.

Yes. How Master Page text frames act is being changed as a result of complaints/suggestions to (hopefully) make them like ID/QXP.

OHH, sorry Walt - just checked, and the shift-click works perfectly. Thanks for the tip

Right, MikeW, as replied to Walt I just found that shift-clicking the flowtriangle did the trick! One last thing, though: is it possible to have Publisher adding new page automatically when just writing out of the current frame?

Not that I am aware of.

Right, might be an idea for the devs - could potentially tempt a few MS Word users to migrate.

My feeling is most Word users will not like the need for text frames at all. They will especially not like changing the page size and altering the margins only to find the text frames don't adjust to the new margins. Now, this behavior of the text frames matching pargins may change and so be less an issue.

For any single paste operation you need only one shift-click. As many pages and frames as needed are added at that point.
