     One way to do this is to
1. Use Draw to make your curved text-box.
2. Convert this box into a bitmap and save it as a PNG.
3. Use this as the background for your pages.
4. Use paragraph styles to place the text where you want it. (Use the Indenting & Spacing tab of the paragraph style.) With the curves in the background, you might need to have several paragraph styles for differences in indentation.

Hi :)
How can i make a nicely curved text-box that automatically keeps all the
text inside the boundaries of the box?  At the moment i cheat a lot and it's
a lot of work that ends up never looking quite right

The 'attachment' shows the type of curved shape i am aiming for.  Ideally
text written into the box on page 1 would automatically flow into the box on
the next page but again i just do a manual cut&paste which is annoying and
also never quite works properly.


Many thanks and regards from
Tom :)
