I am working on a translation a try to put the original and the translated text side by side in the document. I would like the columns to be independent and run over multiple pages, so that if I enter enough text to overflow one column, a new page is created that continues both columns. As a visualization, take a look at the paracol environment of LateX or:
This is my first text This is text 2 which on page one it is is also very long and quite long should also break [page break]--------------------------------------------- and continues on page over to the next page two and so on ... and go on here. And on ... And on ...
Since I have about 400 pages of text, I would like to automate this.
I tried to solve this with a master template and automatic text flow. However, if one column overflows and a new page is created, only one of the text fields is linked. This would mean that I need to link all 400 pages by hand. I would like to find a way around this, but all tutorials I found either relied on manual text flow (a lot of clicking and linking) or did just not work.
I have also created a spread master template with two columns per page and have linked the columns on the spread (left column on page 1 to left column on page 2, etc.) but copying the text again did not make the link carry over to the next spread.
Does anyone know how this behavior can be achieved?
