Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating books, part of InDesign CS3 Long Documents.
I'm in a document called mary1 in the Book folder and here I have the popular nursery rhyme "Mary, Mary, Quiet Contrary,"…which I've broken down in to four separate documents and I'm going to make those documents into a book.…Now obviously you wouldn't break down a four page document into a book but doing it in this pretty condensed format allows me…to show you a number of different features all cramped into a small amount of space…and the principle is the same whether you are working with four pages or four thousand pages.…
On each of these documents I have a chapter number that's a text variable and I'll show you how we enter that in a moment…and I have an automatic page number and I also have some numbered lists as well as Paragraph Styles, Swatches, character styles.…Let's just take a quick look at the other components of this book and we can see…that at the moment there are just four separate documents with no actual relationship to each other and that the page numbering,…chapter numbering and the list numbering currently starts over at the beginning of everyone of these documents.…
