Warning message: Document contains connected text boxes

What is the issue?

In Word, text boxes can be linked together, this allows text that does not fit into the first text box to flow into the next text box.

axesWord does not currently support this function.

How to fix it?

Unlink the text frames:

  • Select the first text box
  • Go to the Shape Format tab
  • Click on the Break Link button
    Word: tab 'Shape Format'; button 'Break Link' highlighted

If necessary, distribute the texts to the various (unlinked) text frames.
