In a brochure (A5) I am designing in InDesign CC I would like to present several persons. Currently my layout is designed such that I divided the page into three columns, place the image of the person in the outermost column, a small text box below the image for the name/position of the person and use the space in the other two columns for text describing the person. This text is placed in a separate text box. Works so far.
Still, I am running into several annoyances:
If the text describing the person is too long, the large text box is higher than the image and the short text combined
Each time I would like to add a new person, I have to create two text boxes and an image, and align them. Furthermore, when moving them around, I have to keep in mind to mark them all at once to avoid re-aligning afterwards.
Each time adding a new person means that I have to put the person into the correct slot (assumed I would like to sort them according to their names), and shuffling all the other persons around. Pre-setting the persons is not possible, unfortunately
Thus, are there easier ways for dealing with this situation?
