Problem when layout a book (dictionary) Headers especial
« on: June 10, 2019, 12:29:13 am »
I'm layout book.
This book has more than 150 pages and more than 400 terms.
I do not know how to put the automatic headers so that they appear as in the printed dictionaries.
On the left page the first term and on the right page the last term.
I have different text styles for the terms and the description.
Please, I need the help ???

if you have paragraph styles for the terms, this might be possible possible with a python script.

i can try to write such a script if you want to go that way...

so i need to know more about the details...

... and if you're getting paid for the job, i would not be against getting paid for some of my work... (the result would be published as free software).
