When you type or import text into a text frame, the text becomes part of an article. Text frames are containers which hold text articles. Articles can flow from page to page because text frames can be linked together.

You can place more than one article on a page. For example, a newspaper generally has half a dozen articles on the front page which are continued on inside pages. Each article is in a linked series of text frames where the first frame is on the front page and the other frames are on the inside pages.

If there are other text items accompanying an article, such as a caption, you should create separate text frames or text blocks for them.

If a text frame has a small crossed box symbol at its bottom right corner, there is more text in the frame than can be displayed. This symbol is referred to as the “overset” indicator. You should link the text frame to another frame, make the frame larger, or make the text smaller so that the overset text can be shown. It is possible that the overset text may be extra linefeeds that you entered accidentally.

The overset indicator will not be printed, but you should watch for overset indicators to avoid creating documents missing potentially important text.
