Maintaining consistency across book files

You can ensure that paragraph-style specifications and color definitions are consistent throughout the book, creating a unified look for your long publication. To make this easier to manage, InDesign designates one of the files as the style source document. The style and color definitions in this source document are then used in all the other documents. By default, the first file that you place in the book becomes the style source. This is not necessarily the file at the top of the list in the Book palette.

You can tell which file is the style source by looking in the Book palette. A style source icon () appears in the box to the left of the designated source file. This box is empty for all other book files.
