Unlinking text boxes in InDesign

I never knew that you could unlink text boxes in InDesign until I read about it in a handy tip from InDesign Magazine. Basically, you can unlink text boxes without disturbing their contents by running a simple script that you already have. In InDesign CS3, open your Scripts panel (Window> Automation>Scripts) and look in the Application folder, then the JavaScript folder. You’ll see a script called SplitStory. Place your cursor in one frame of the story and double-click the script name in the panel. InDesign will split all the frames of the story into individual frames.
