I'm creating a flyer to be printed on an A4 sheet, which will then be cut in half, so I want identical contents on the top and bottom halves of the page. I have created the top in one of two frames that I have placed on the page. The frame contains a background image, text, and a sub-frame. Having created one half, I now want to copy the lot, and place it in the second frame. How?

o Delete the second (empty) frame.
o Click the edge of the main frame to select it - so that you see the eight coloured handles.
o Copy the frame (Edit | Copy or Ctrl+C).
o Click outside the frame to deselect it.
o Paste (Edit | Paste or Ctrl+V).
o Because it will be anchored identically, the new frame will probably appear superimposed on the original. Select it and drag it where you need it or use Format | Frame/Object ... and set the position there.

Incidentally, there is another technique. Instead of using a frame for the original (or as well as doing so), use a section. For the second copy, create another section. In the second section, tick the Link box and select the first section's name from the drop-down list for Section. That way, you will get a copy of the first section that should automatically update as you modify the first.

I trust this helps.
