Master page problems
« on: August 09, 2019, 01:27:13 pm »
I am undecided whether to keep everything in a file with 11 chapters and for each page right and left make a master page I will have 11 pages right +11 pages 11 master or keep in separate files and in each file I will have only one master page right + 1 left .
the problem that in every master page at the bottom I have to write the title of the chapter so it will be 11 different pages! how do you do?

hi jim

as always, there are different ways…
i think, i would work with different master pages. (unfortunately there's no such thing as cascading master pages…)
as an alternative you could use the scrapbook for the chapter titles.

hi jim
Scrap book ?what is ?

under 'windows' → 'scrapbook' you'll find a storage space for preconfigured items (or groups of items). you can store objects there via menu 'item' → 'send to' → 'scrapbook' or with a right click on the object. a double click on a scrapbook entry places the stored item on the actual page with te original coordinates.
