Chapter 34. Assembling Large Documents > Working with the Master Document

Working with the Master Document

Once you have set up your master document, you can use Master Document and Normal views to work with the document. In Master Document view, you can view the overall structure of the document, and reorganize the sections in the document. For example, it is very easy to reorder the subdocuments that make up the master document by using the mouse and the buttons on the Outlining toolbar. You should work in Master Document view when you need to make changes that affect the overall structure of the document. You can also open the individual subdocuments in Master Document view, because each subdocument appears as a hyperlink.

In Normal view, you can work with the document just as if it were a single document. You can format the document, add page numbers, tables of contents and other tables, indexes, and cross-references. When you switch to Normal view, each subdocument that makes up the master document is a section (see Chapter 13, "Formatting the Page Layout, Alignment, and Numbering"). You can apply section formatting to these sections. For example, you can set up different headers and footers in the individual sections. You also can click the hyperlink for a subdocument while in Normal view to open and edit the subdocument.
