Placing an article component in a single frame using Smart Connection for InDesign

Placing an article component in a single frame using Smart Connection for InDesign

This is the most basic method of placing an article; understanding how this process works will help when making use of the more complex methods.

This method can be split into the following actions:

  • Placing a single article component in a single frame
  • Placing a multi-component article in a single frame

Notes: For the sake of simplicity, the scenarios that follow refer to an article component that has not yet been placed elsewhere. For information about placing articles multiple times, see Placing an article multiple times in Smart Connection.

Info: The information presented here applies to the following versions of Smart Connection:

  • Smart Connection 9
  • Smart Connection for Adobe CC
  • Smart Connection for Adobe CC 2014

Placing a single article component in a single frame

Notes: The article that is placed is either an article containing a single component or a single component from a multi-component article.

Use one of the following methods:

Placing a multi-component article in a single frame

When placing an article containing multiple components onto a single frame, only one of the components can of course be placed. Because Smart Connection does not know which component to place, a dialog box appears in which you have to choose the component that you want to place:

The dialog box for selecting the article component to place

The method of placing a multi-component article in a single frame is identical to placing a single article component as described above: select the frame and do one of the following:

  • Double-click the article
  • Right-click the article and choose 'Place'
  • Drag the article onto the frame
