Select your first frame.
Click on the text chain button.
Select the second frame.
Text will now flow to the second.

To repeat this using the second frame.
Select your second frame.
Click on the text chain button.
Select the third frame.
Text now flows from the 1st to 2nd to 3rd.

Hint: Using the story editor on any oneof the chain edits the story.
