Text Flowing in a Table Over multiple pages

Postby johnny5924 » Sat Jun 01, 2019 11:21 am

Hello, I am creating a TV script. I have two columns, one for video and one for audio, which runs over several pages. I am trying to insert text in the audio column but it only fills up the first page. how do I get my text to flow over the several pages? Thx!

Use Frames and link them, or, if your texts are short, use tables.

In the OO extensions repository there are some templates for various scripts - play, film etc.
https://templates.openoffice.org/en/search?query=script&sort_by=created&sort_order=ASC for a selection. One of these might suit you "out of the box".

It is often best to use Tables; limit your tables each to one page if possible. Tables have the advantage that the texts, shown in separate columns, are easily aligned. Usually in any form of scripting the texts are short.
