Laying Out Pages and Creating Long Documents To customize this feature, you can specify which styles synchronize by choosing Synchronize Options from the Book panel menu. Check the styles you want to synchronize, then click the Synchronize button to synchronize all the documents in the book. #85. Paginating a Book One advantage of using a book to manage multiple documents is the ability to use automatic pagination. As you work on documents in a book, adding and removing pages, InDesign can update page numbers throughout all the documents. In addition, if you want all the documents to start on a left-facing (even-numbered) or right- facing (odd-numbered) page, InDesign can automatically insert pages at the end of one document to ensure the next document starts on the correct odd or even page. By default, books are paginated the same way the documents are. If all the documents that comprise a book use automatic page numbering, and each begins on page 1, the book is paginated sequentially from the first page of the first document to the last page of the last document. If there are any sections of page numbers created within a document, those are reflected in the book. At the start of a new section, the pagination of that section continues to the start of the next section. For example, the first document in this book (Figure 85a) is the Table of Contents, and it spans pages i­iv. The second document, which is Chapter 1: Getting Started, has a section start and starts on page 1. The next document follows the previous document's page numbering, so you see pages 18­39 followed by pages 40­42. Figure 85a. Books can have many sections of page numbers.
