How to Create an Automatic Text Box in Existing Layouts

If you have no Automatic Text Box in your layout, you can create one. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. In the Page Layout palette, drag a page icon (facing or non-facing) into the Master Pages region of the palette. It will be named B-Master B by default.
  2. Double-click on the new B-master B Master Page to display it in the layout window.
  3. Create a text box that matches the point of origin and height/width you want for the Automatic Text Box.
  4. Select the Linking tool in the Tools palette.
  5. Click on the Unlinked Chain icon located in the top left corner of your B-Master B master page and then click on your text box. If your Master Page is a Facing Pages Master Page do the same thing for the other facing page of the master page.
Note!: This procedure will work for any master page, including your existing A-Master A master page.
