How do I Autofill text boxes in macOS Pages 6.1.1 - for example, using more Lorem ipsum than current Pages 6 text box will contain (either more text or increase text size), how to have text fill (flow) to 1 or more text boxes below in current document. Text boxes may be on successive pages.

Bad News .. Apple dropped text box linking in Pages some time ago .. so you cannot autoflow text between textboxes as far as I am aware.

They decided to leave that feature to professional DTP software like InDesign, Quark etc.  .. you can even do it in Microsoft Word!!

Big thumbs-down for Apple on this one!!

I agree, Apple should include this feature in next rev of Pages. Turns out another Mac in our office has Swift Publisher 4 which, I am told, has linked text boxes - we shall see!
