Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Placing and flowing text, part of Learning InDesign (2011).
Let's say that you've created some text in a word processor or exported that…text from another application.…Why then you can turn around and place that text into InDesign, as well as flow…the text into multiple columns and pages.…Now, I'm going to start things off by showing you the manual approach, but I'll…also share with you a few automated tips and tricks as well.…I'm going to start by making a new document, by clicking on the Document…button here in the Welcome screen. Then I'm going to take advantage of that…document preset that I created way back in the first exercise, One-on-One,…and that will result in a new eight-page document that contains two columns…per page and so forth.…
Now I'll go ahead and click the OK button in order to create that document.…Now I want you to notice something right away.…Down here in the lower left-hand corner of the window, there's this item that…starts off with a green circle and it says, "No errors."…This is the preflight message.…It tells me what's going on, right or wrong, inside the document before I end…
