Summary0000331: Enabled click and <meta key>+click to create new frame
DescriptionIf we enable a click and <meta key>+click on the "crossed box" of an overfull text frame we could have auto insertion enabled. That is, click on the box, then we click on the page and a new text frame is created that is autolinked to the one we originally clicked on. We could also have a meta key +click such as Control+Click on the "crossed box" to put the insertion into a Page insert mode where the new frame would be inserted onto a new page.

This sort of facility does make working with significant amounts of text a LOT quicker and easier.

Why restrict this feature to overfull text frames? It would also be useful to easily create linked text frames before inserting any text, e.g. by clicking the "Link frames" icon and drawing a new frame.
