Did you know InDesign has a feature that lets you automatically calculate and display the last page number of your layout? And it’s incredibly easy to add, using the Type > Text Variables menu.
But what if your last page is on a different layout—say in a different chapter in a book? In that case you have to use a cross reference instead.
In this episode of InDesign Secrets, I show you how to create a cross reference, point it at text or a text anchor, and format it to display the last page number of a book spanning multiple layouts.
