InDesign CS5: Span/Split Columns

One of the more compelling features in InDesign CS5 is the Span/Split columns feature. It’s a setting that enables a paragraph to span multiple columns in a text frame.

However, there are a couple gotchas and limitations in the first iteration of this feature.

Every InDesigner should also have a look at Ina’s book on tattoo-less typography.
