I'm having an odd issue in indesign. I have a book to reset from one column to two columns. When I reflow all the pages (doesn't matter if manual or automatically), some texts jumps a frame (see attached snap). I've tried a lot of things, wrap options, oversets, etc. The only way I can fix it temporally, is clickong in the connect arrow at right bottom of the previous frame. I have to do it for all the blank frames. But if I edit something it goes wrong again from that page to the rest. This is making me crazy. Someone has an idea of how to fix it. NOTE: If I move the blank frames to other place out of the page, the text goes back. This error seems to have something consistent, so that makes me think is some kind of option I'm missing up. Thanks.
I am guessing that there is a "hard page break" there, probably from an imported Word document.
Easiest way to eliminate it is to highlight the "white space" between "[...]now?" and "Quote: You may [...]" and hit delete.
Hard Page breaks are easily detectable in Word Processing documents by altering the paper size or margin size and look for gaps in after text reflow. And this also serves to highlight "tab alignment" as @scott suggests– YorikMay 1, 2018 at 17:59
The (hidden) dotted lines seem to indicate a whole bunch of tabs. Which can often be used by inexperienced people to force a line break or indent, rather than proper soft/hard line feeds and indents.
You probably need to remove those.
I kind of think, this combined with @Yorik 's answer would solve the issue.
There may also be "keep" settings in the source document, some of which could be eliminated by setting indesign import to not allow styles etc. But I agree with @scott about tabs also.– YorikMay 1, 2018 at 18:01
Not sure what you have there, but it looks like you need to increase the height of the text frames a bit, only by a few millimeters. If i am right, the text should jump back to its normal place, in which case you could consider adjusting the overall grid to allow for taller text frames.
To avoid this follow the instructions below:
If you did not make any paragraph style you can find "keep function" by selecting the text and as displayed on screenshot 4.
Welcome! Please explain what to do for each screenshot you added, then your answer is better understandable!– MenschApr 20, 2019 at 16:39
Enterkey (not the Return key) to force text to the next frame, you don't need all those tabs.
