Hi :)
Thanks Dan, Brian and Regina :)  Yes, the header and footer have the 
charity/company banners top&bottom.  Logos and bits&bobs 
sometimes go outside the curved space but really only on the first 
page.  I've only shown 2 of the middle 12 pages but the rest are 
identical once i've added the header&footer to all.  

the frame have the same rounded corners as the drawing element?  Could i
 replace the frame&drawing element with something else that would 

Brian thanks for signposting me to page 122 of the Writers Guide to link the frames.  That makes a 
big difference.  Now the only problem is trying to fit the text inside the curve.  Dan thanks for 
the idea about using paragraph styles but i think that is going to be about the same as i do now.  
At the moment i use 

Shift Enter
to get a new-line that is still part of the same paragraph and then i just use a lot of space-bar 
at the start and end of the line to move the fully-justified text into the curve!  

Thanks so far and regards from 
Tom :)

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.


That is very difficult, because the frame has no rounded corners and the 
drawing element T has only few formatting possibilities. Will there be 
text outside the box or do you try to make a special page decoration?

Kind regards
