Splitting Text Boxes



Text blocks can be split at paragraph boundaries. This can make editing large blocks of text faster and helps to avoid reflowing text that does not need it.

Use the Linked text tool to select the text box to be split.

The example shows a large block of text with complicating formatting.

To edit just the middle paragraph without reflowing any of the other text, the text box should be split.

Choose Text > Text Boxes > Split Paragraphs.

The single box is split so that each paragraph becomes a box, not linked to any other.

Although the new text boxes are not linked together, for clarity they have been linked together in this image to highlight the effect of splitting.



After splitting, Infix switches to the Text tool ready for editing.
