Using InDesign Master Pages for Long Documents

InDesign master pages

Imagine you’re a designer laying out a 500-page book in InDesign, with all kinds of page types—various front matter, end matter, body text, chapter openers, etc.

Would you try to build each of those pages manually, starting with a blank page every time? Or would you reach for a tool that would allow you to easily create all those pages with the speed and consistency of professional-quality work?

In this article, I’m going to show you how InDesign master pages work.

You can also watch my lynda.com course Creating Long Documents with InDesign CC for a complete long-document workflow—including how to use master pages.
