I have a newspaper article that a client has put into Word (don’t know how).
It is a disaster with section break, page breaks, anchored and unanchored images everywhere.
So I’m trying to 'rebuild the text boxes ’ (p 96+ in manual)
One of the problems is columns.
I’ll try to show you with a diagram
xxx is my first block of text and I’m pretty sure I managed to rebuild it as a text box with Infix
But I now need to join the second paragraph that starts in column 1 (y) and continues in column 2 (z)
I want Y and Z to be one text block in other words.
I can’t use the merge vertically tool obviously but I thought I could use the object tool with shift held down and by clicking on y and then z (page 98)
So I click on ‘y’ first but when I click on ‘z’, I can see a big blue box that appears around ‘x’ as well
But as i’d already rebuilt ‘x’, I don’t think this should happen.
I’ve also tried rebuilding ‘x’ ‘y’ and ‘z’ separately before trying to merge ‘y’ and ‘z’ but I get the same result as before.
So how can I merge y and z without x ?
Sorry to ask such a complicated question but this is the sort of thing I would want Infix for.
