Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Synchronizing book documents, part of Creating Long Documents with InDesign.
When you're working with long documents you will often spend a lot of time…and effort making sure things are consistent and to spec across all the files in your project.…You can take a lot of the effort out of making styles, swatches, and other…document settings consistent by synchronizing them via the Book panel.…The first thing to know about synchronizing documents in the Book panel is that…one document is designated as the master document or the style source.…In this book it's the Cheese_01 document here, and I can see that it's the style…source by the icon on the left-hand side.…You can broadcast this document's styles and other settings into all of the other…documents in the book, or just specific ones.…
You can have only one style source at a time in a book, but you can easily…change which document is the style source.…You just click in this column to change it.…Now Cheese_03 would be the style source for the book.…It's almost too easy to change the style source, and there's no way to lock it to one document.…
