I am layouting artikels in 3 collums connected over some pages for a 
Every artikel should end at the end of its text-box.
The white-space above the artikel is filled with an image. The result is 
a perfectly filled and used page.
Like it is now the text-box is filled with text form top-down.
To get the text at the end of the box, i have to resize the text-box or 
put an other box with bounding above it.
During the process i place and replace images, streamers and headers 
with bounding who move the text again.
When the text would be locked at the end of the frame it would spare me 
a lot of time.
