Thread Pre-Existing Text Frames

If you have a document that has unthreaded text frames (fig. 1) and you want to thread them together, but don’t want the text to end-up smashed together (like fig. 2) when you’re done, follow these steps.

  1. Do a GREP Find/Replace with these values (screenshot fig. 3)
    • Find: .\z (last character in a text frame)
    • Replace with: $0~R (previously found text and frame break character)
  2. Thread the frames together

Your finished product will look something like fig. 4!
