Chapter 18. Books > To create a book:

To create a book:

1.
Decide which file will be the master. The master file specifications will be applied to all the book chapters. To create a master file:

Create a new file that contains only the master page(s), style sheets, colors, H&Js, lists, and dashes and stripes that you want all the chapter files to share. Save the file. Include the word "master" in the title, if you like, to help prevent confusion later on. Apply the Current Page Number command (Ctrl-3) to a text box on the master page.

or

Open an existing file, and use File menu > Save As to save a copy of it (use the word "master" in the name). Then delete all the text and all the pages except the first page and re-save the file. As with a new file, make sure it contains only the master pages, style sheets, colors, H&Js, lists, and dashes & stripes that you want all the chapter files to share and make sure it contains the Current Page Number command in a text box on the master page.

You can use the File menu > Append command to append style sheets, lists, colors, etc. from any other file to the master.

2.
Choose File menu > New > Book.

3.
Choose a location in which to save the book . (To create a new folder, click the Create New Folder button, type a name, press Enter, then click Open.)

4.
Type a name for the book in the File name field, then click Create.

5.
On the book palette that opens, click the Add Chapter (leftmost) icon .

6.
Locate and highlight the name of the file that you want to be the master , then click Add or press Enter . Now you can start adding chapters to the book (next page).

Once chapters have been added to a book, all you have to do is double-click a chapter name on the palette to open that chapter.
