With Linkster XTensions software, you can link and unlink text boxes without causing reflow.To use Linkster,


  1. Select the items you want to link or unlink.
  2. Next, choose Utilities > Linkster to display the Linkster dialog box.
  3. Click Selection to unlink the selected items, or Pages to unlink a range of pages (specified in terms of absolute position).


To unlink stories, click Unlink, then choose one of the following options:


  • Option 1 creates three stories: one for the boxes before the selected box, one for the selected box, and one for the boxes after the selected box.
  • Option 2 creates two stories: one for the boxes before and after the selected box, and one for the selected box.
  • Option 3 creates two stories: one for the boxes before the selected box and the selected box, and one for the boxes after the selected box.
  • Option 4 creates two stories: one for the boxes before the selected box, and one for the selected box and the boxes after the selected box.


To link text boxes, click Link. If Pages is selected, this option links only those boxes that have been unlinked by Linkster. If Selection is selected, Linkster tries to link the selected boxes in the order you selected them.



Click Keep text in same boxes to attempt to keep the text in the same boxes after linking.
