You can break a link between any two linked text boxes (text box: A movable, resizable container for text or graphics. Use text boxes to position several blocks of text on a page or to give text a different orientation from other text in the document.) that are part of a story (story: Text that's contained within a single text box or a chain of linked text boxes.). When you break a link in a story, you create two stories.
- Switch to print layout view (Print Layout view: A view of a document or other object as it will appear when you print it. For example, items such as headers, footnotes, columns, and text boxes appear in their actual positions.).
- Select the text box that you want the text to stop flowing from.
To do this, move the pointer over the border of the text box until the pointer becomes a four-headed arrow, and then click the border.
- On the Text Box toolbar (toolbar: A bar with buttons and options that you use to carry out commands. To display a toolbar, press ALT and then SHIFT+F10.), click Break Forward Link .
Note The text stops flowing at the last text box before the broken link. Any subsequent series of linked text boxes will be empty.
