Chapter 88. Managing Book Files > Setting Page Order

Setting Page Order

Another good reason to use the Book feature is to standardize automatic page numbering across multiple documents. InDesign can use the order of the files in the Book palette to correctly set the starting page number for each document in the book. You can set the page order of your documents by dragging them up or down within the Book palette. After you drag a document, InDesign renumbers all the other files (which can take a little while).

InDesign (unlike XPress) lets you specify how InDesign should number the pages in your book by selecting Book Page Numbering Options from the Book palette’s flyout menu (see Figure 88-3). For example, you can force each chapter to start on either odd or even pages, and you can even tell InDesign to insert blank filler pages when needed. You can also indicate if page numbering should be continued from one chapter to the next. Of course, this only works when you’ve used automatic page numbering to display your page numbers (see Chapter 51).
