Chapter 5. Text Flow > To insert pages using a dialog box:

To insert pages using a dialog box:

1.
Optional: We take a methodical approach to adding pages, since it can have a domino effect on the existing pages in a document. Our first step is to save our document, so we can use Revert to Saved if we need to. Our second step is to choose Page > Go to (Cmd-J/Ctrl-J), enter the number of the page we want pages inserted before or after, and then click OK.

2.
If you want to link the new pages to an existing text chain, choose the Item or Content tool, then click a box in the chain.

3.
Choose Page > Insert.

4.
In the Insert field, enter the number of pages to be inserted (1–1999!) .

5.
Click before page, after page, or at end of document, and make sure the correct page number appears in the field. The number of the currently displayed document page will appear there, but you can enter a different number. If the page has a prefix or Roman style that was assigned via the Section command, type it in that manner.

6.
Choose Master Page: Blank Single, Blank Facing Page, or a master page.

If you want to link the new pages using an automatic text box, choose a Master Page that contains an automatic text box on which to base the new page(s), and check Link to Current Text Chain. (Linking is covered on pages 77–79 in this chapter, and Chapter 14 is devoted entirely to master pages.)

7.
Click OK.

If you check the Facing Pages box in the New Document dialog box for a print document, all pages after the first page will be stacked in pairs along a central spine. This format is used for book and magazine layouts. Facing document page icons have a turned-down (dog-eared) corner.
