In InDesign you can introduce a new textframe by clicking with the text
cursor on the workspace or page. You can also make up a Textframe by
clicking with the text cursor on the workspace, hold it, and drag the
cursor diagonal to define the dimensions of the new text frame. After
the click begin writing - text. Simply as this concept is, you can
alternatively introduce a new text frame by activate the text frame
tool and click and dracg the pointer to define the dimensions. Then
click to activate the text tool, click into the new frame and start
writing text - not as conveniant like the first option I explained. The
concept sticks with text frames as objects that holds text.
If you click with the select tool into the text frame you can
automaticaly change it into an image/object frame, and load with STRG+D
new images. The text frame becames an image frame. Actually I don't
know if this works also with text frames that contains already some
I think this is really a workflow oriented concept, and the real meaning
of this point in the OP's posting.
Just my two cents.
