Chapter 2. Page Layout > Alternate Layouts

Alternate Layouts

The ability to create alternate layouts within documents is one of those delightful new features that should please both print and digital publishers. Let’s look at two ways to use this feature:

• Example 1: You need to print a postcard in three different sizes: 3″x5″, 4″x6″, and 5″x7″. Instead of creating three separate documents, you can build your postcard design in one size and then create alternate layouts for the other two sizes. You can establish parent/child links between the text and objects in the different layouts so that making one change can ripple through all layouts.

• Example 2: You’re creating a DPS magazine article that you want to appear on the iPad, the Kindle Fire, and various Android tablets. You want to create both horizontal and vertical layouts (for when the device is rotated), and you want to create 2048x1536, 1232x752, 1024x768, and 1024x600 folio sizes. Instead of creating eight different documents, you need to create only one document with multiple layouts (see Figure 2-33).
