Chapter 2. Top Ten “Gotchas” for PageMak... > “When I move from page to page, thin...

“When I move from page to page, things I leave on the pasteboard disappear.”

PageMaker’s pasteboard is based on a traditional “art board” approach—you can place an object from your page out the pasteboard, then change the page (the art board), and the object out the pasteboard is still there for you to use. InDesign, however, uses the QuarkXPress approach to the pasteboard: There’s just one huge pasteboard on which all the page spreads sit. Another way to look at this is that the pasteboard is unique for each spread. The result is that an object placed on the pasteboard disappears when you switch to a new page.

InDesign, like PageMaker, does have an Entire Pasteboard command (View>Entire Pasteboard) that zooms out to allow you to see the pasteboard’s contents, but only the objects placed on that page’s pasteboard can be viewed.
