Summary0010024: In Linked Text Frame the Frame Break add extra blank line in the second frame's firs column
DescriptionIn case two or more Text Frames are linked, Frame Break add extra blank line in the second frame's firs column, so the second Text Frame's second column starting 1 line higher then the first column of this frame.
Steps To ReproduceHave 2 or more text frames.
Text Frame 1: no column
Text Frame 2: 2 coulmns
Text Frame x: 2 or more columns
Link them together.
Put text into it (lorem ipsum for example).
Use Story Editor >> Insert >> Space >> Frame Break
In case You insert the frame break at the end of a paragraph, the new paragraph will have ADDITIONAL 1 BLANK LINE in the document, and can not be aligned with the second column's first line. See pink arrows in the picture. So YOu can apply different styles for each paragraph, but this aokward unalignment will be stay there.

Additional InformationIf you put the frame break anywhere else in the text of the paragraph this is not happening. But in this case You can not apply different stylings to the paragraph's parts.

Please let me know how to solve this.

there are a few bugs related with this one and which affect the frame breaks.

i guess that somebody should go through them all and work on it :-)

I reproduce this issue but is this really an issue ?
As long as "frame break" is a special glyph, the EndOfParagraph being AFTER the frame break is moved at the begining of the new frame.

As a workaround, or rather an other way of doing, is to insert the frame break AFTER the end of line paragraph = at the beginning of following paragraph.
Doing so, some of the paragraph properties as "vertical space before" will be used for the first part of paragraph and will be lost for paragraph main body. Of course.

there could be another solution : it would require to change the "frame break" glyph into a "End of Paragraph" property...
