Dear Colleagues

I am a novice at Adobe InDesign. My question is this: I am doing an editing job where I insert edits into an existing InDesign book. Now with the edits there have been more words added to the original document. I need to add 2 new pages to contain them. I have added the new pages using the 'pages' tab but the problem is that when my typing reaches the end of the page just before the new added page, the text jumps to the original next page and does not get added to the new page. In other words it skips the new pages I added.

I hope I have made my problem clear and would appreciate any urgent guidance I can get. (The document is in Arabic by the way but I don't believe the language is related to the problem).

Rethread text flow May 12, 2014

Indesign works with text frames. You'll need to rethread the text flow to whatever frames you want to use. (Google it... also Indesign has a good help functionality.)

Incidentally, if you're on this hardly-even-beginner level with Indesign, you probably shouldn't be delivering finished Indesign documents to anybody.

thanks May 12, 2014

Thanks Joakim

It was supposed to be a straightforward job where I just copy ready made edits from Word and past them into InDesign. Thanks, Ill research text frames

Rethreading problem Jun 2, 2014

You have to add text frames to the new pages using the text frame tool, and then rethread the text frames. To rethread the frames you have to use the in and out ports of the text frames. That's the basic idea. Hope it helps.
