Sounds to me like a magazine-type layout with text frames overlapping for deliberate effect. Am I right?
Do you need to know how to select a text frame? Make sure View > Borders is on, then Ctrl-click on the border of the frame. Then you can drag it out of the way, or delete it if it's a duplicate of the frame underneath. If you're trying to select a particular frame and can't, it's probably behind another one. Select the one/s in front and move them out of the way; or select everything, then unselect the ones you don't want, then use Graphics > Bring to Front to get the frame you need on the top. To select everything, first click in the border outside any frame, then use Ctrl-A. Hope that helps!

Sorry, no -- not to me. I didn't say anything about deleting pages, I asked if you needed to know how to delete text frames. If there are empty text frames on top of the frames that contain your main flow (this happens sometimes when you misapply master pages), you need to delete them. If the "extra" text frames aren't empty, are they standalone text frames or autoconnected and flowing from page to page? If the latter, you need to determine if they're part of your main flow or a separate flow. What's in them? Where does it belong? About all I can suggest is that if this document is really messed up, you identify each flow (may be one or more text frames), select all in flow, and copy to a new document. That doesn't resolve how the doc got messed up and how to avoid doing it again. But maybe some quality time with the relevant parts of the FM user guide will help. Other than that, I'm at a loss. Maybe someone else on the list can intuit what you need. Richard ------ Richard G.
