Linking text boxes

Step 1 - Locate the page where you want the text linking to begin. Select the Link tool (second from the bottom on the tool palette--it looks like a chain link).

Step 2 - Click on the box you want linked. The icon will change to look like the links of a chain. Click on the mouse; you will see a moving, broken (dashed) line around the text box.

Step 3 - Go to the text box that is going to be next in the link. Place the cursor in the box and click on it. You will know the boxes have been linked by the thick black line extending from the first of the linked boxes to the second. Continue to link boxes until you have come to the end of your text. Click onto another icon on the toolbar to leave the "link" feature.

We understand that your problem is: when I go to the edit menu and click on check spelling, story, with a text box highlighted, all I get now is a "word count," where I used to get a run through...

Hello designres... There used to be a work-around by selecting the text, Utilies>Check Spelling>Selection, which would give the number of words. According to this thread
this work-around was still in Quark 8.02 but disappeared in Quark 8.1.

Hope this helps you!

Thanks for choosing Fixya!
