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.

Each Continued notice must be manually inserted for each text box. You can also add a Continued from page notice in a linked text box even if you don't use the Continued on page notice in the first text box.

  • Continued on page – This notice appears in the first of a series of linked text boxes.

  • Continued from page – This notice appears in a text box that the previous text box is linked to.

Important: Text must be present in two or more linked text boxes that are located on separate pages before Continued notices will appear.
