[scribus] Problem with linked frames

I worked with Pagemaker professionally for many years. Now retired, I 
decided to try Scribus as a modern equivalent, installing version 1.4.8 
for Windows 10. However, I found it far more complicated and less 
intuitive. Eventually I managed to get some content on one page, and 
tried to flow text over frame links. Although the frames are showing as 
linked, as indicated by a pop-up telling me that they were already 
linked when I tried again, text refuses to flow, ending mid-sentence at 
the bottom of the first frame. There is a small "x" in a square where 
the text stops, but the linked frame remains empty. The Story Editor 
shows the complete text. Both frames are on the same layer. I even 
unlinked the second frame, and then linked it again.
I suspect I should do something with that small "x" in the corner, but 
it cannot be activated with a click, so I'm stumped. What am I missing?
