Add or change a Continued notice

Continued notices guide a reader through the several linked, or connected, text boxes of a story by providing notes that say Continued on page 2 or Continued from page 1. You can customize Continued notices by rewording or reformatting them to better suit your publication's style.

This article describes Continued notices. Find links to more information about creating text boxes, flowing text in multiple text boxes, or connecting text boxes in the See Also section.
