Merging Subdocuments

Although splitting documents into subdocuments for organizing, editing, and enhancement purposes is a useful function, there will be times when you want to combine subdocuments after you’ve worked with them independently. To merge two subdocuments, follow these steps:

1.
Open the master document with links to the subdocument files.

2.
Click Expand Subdocuments to display the contents of the subdocument files.

3.
Make sure that the subdocuments you want to combine are next to one another. For more on moving subdocuments, see “Rearranging a Master Document,” on page 589.

4.
Select both subdocuments by clicking their subdocument icons. (Press and hold Shift while you select the second subdocument.)

5.
Click Merge Subdocument on the Outlining toolbar. The second subdocument is combined with the first.
