You probably already know that when you place text into an InDesign document, you can click on an existing frame to place the text into it, or click and drag to draw a new frame for the text. But you can also create a series of linked frames to hold the text.
With a loaded text cursor, just hold Option/Alt, then drag to create a series of new linked frames.
Or hold Option/Alt and click on any existing empty text frames to link them and place the text into them at the same time.
