Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using alternate layouts, part of InDesign CC: Interactive Document Fundamentals (2014).
Once you become familiar with Liquid Page rules and Liquid Layout, the job of…creating alternate layouts for different screen sizes…and orientations becomes a little easier to handle.…So, let's take a look at how alternate layouts work.…If I select the Page tool and look in the Control panel, I can see that this…document is 768 pixels wide by 1024 pixels high in a vertical orientation.…What I want to do now is create a second horizontal…version because I want to publish this document to the iPad and…I want layouts that fit the screen both horizontally and vertically.…
All the pages in this document are based on the A master page.…And if I view that master's page in the Pages panel,…I see that the object based Liquid Page rule is in effect.…And if I click on the picture frame.…I can see that its width and height are…flexible, and it's pinned to the top and the sides.…The text frame has not been pinned…anywhere, and its width and height are flexible.…Also I want to take a look at the options applied to this text frame.…
