Chapter 2. Page Layout > Defining Sections

Defining Sections

Sections are ranges of pages that have unique properties—for instance, they often have a different page numbering style. By using sections, you can combine front matter numbered using lowercase roman numerals starting with page one (or i) and regular pages numbered using Arabic numerals and also beginning with page one (1). Another example would be a magazine layout containing a special advertising section that has a page numbering system that differs from that used in the rest of the magazine. A third example: A book or catalog that has consistent page numbering throughout, but has different headers listed along the top of the page in different sections.

InDesign’s sections features makes setting up these sorts of variations inside a single publication easy. You can have multiple sections in an InDesign publication, and each section can have its own starting page number, page numbering system, and page numbering prefix. By default, every InDesign file has one section already, beginning on the first page.
