When working on long documents, it's often unwieldy working with a single long text block, and splitting stories involves cutting and pasting, which takes time and creates possibilities for error. Instead, we should be able to split a text thread with a single click and KEEP the text where it was (instead of having the text as excess in the first text block, with blank text boxes thereafter). A StorySplitter script was created that does this, but I can't seem to get it to work.
Such a basic feature should be included in InDesign.

Why aren't more people screaming for this feature? There needs to be a way to split a story at the input or output port of a text frame and have the text split at the same point.
