Is there perhaps a Top of Page setting somewhere in Flow A? Perhaps a
paragraph with an override that you're not aware of?

Subject: Text flow oddity

I've got an odd one....
I'm running FM 7.1/Win XP
I'm generating a single-sided document with two text flows in parallel
Flow A is generated list (LOP or TOC, both behave the same for this
Flow B is a pasted text list.
Basically I'm making sure that I've got a heading for each item in the
pasted list.

When I regenerate the list, Page one behaves as expected, with the two
text flows running in parallel. The problem comes on the following
The Pasted list (Flow B) runs onto the following page normally.
However, the Generated list *skips* a page, and begins flowing again on
page 3.

Both flows are set to autoconnect.
