Text Threading

In today’s lesson, I learned how to thread text between text boxes and shapes.

Text Threading above

When working with text areas, it is possible to thread from one text area to another.

To begin, copy any form of text by highlighting and Command+C. To create a new text box and deselect the text, Ctrl+Click then click and drag a new text box, then paste the text.

To thread the text, make sure the Selection Tool is equipped, then click on the red square (outport), and click again to create a new text box that’s threaded. To break the thread, double-click where the outport was. This also works with different shapes.
