Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Smart Text Reflow, part of InDesign: Creating Long Documents (2012).
Smart Text Reflow is a feature that you can use to have InDesign…automatically add or remove pages so that a document has no pages that are…either empty or overset.…And you can find the controls for Smart Text Reflow in InDesign's…Preferences, so I'll press Command+K or Ctrl+K under Type and down at the…bottom here is Smart Text Reflow.…So I can enable it or disable it. I can choose where pages are added, so at…the end of a current Story, a section within a document or at the end of the document.…I can apply it only to master text frames or to other frames in the document.…
I can preserve spreads and I can also choose to delete empty pages.…I am going to select that and click OK.…Now one other thing to note is that the Smart Text Reflow Preferences are…document-specific, so changes you make to them only apply to a current document.…If you want to set them up for all of new documents, make them part of your…templates or do what I just did and set them with no documents open.…So now with Smart Text Reflow enabled, I am going to create a new document.…
