MergeTextFrame for InDesign has new features!

Version 1.1.0 now has the ability to batch-merge textframes within every page of the current document. I had several requests for something like this (including from a recent donor). Here it is! The download links above have been updated.

The new version now has the “Apply to” and “Ignore locked layers” as shown in the image below.

Merge Textframes version 1.1.0 new features

Note that any warning messages about having too few textframes selected have been delayed until after the dialog box appears to reflect the new options.

Downloads of the new version are available on the original post.

    I read about the upgrade today, downloaded, and tried to install your script for my InDesign CC 2017 installation, but the installer notified me that MergeTextframes_ID.zxp is missing, thus halting the installation. Can you help?

    1. Justin says:

      If you’re on Windows, make sure that you “Extract All” and run from the extracted folder, not the zipped file.
