Managing Books

When you create a book, you can synchronize page numbers, colors, and styles for all the documents in the book. Each book uses a file called the style source to control the style sheets (including character, paragraph, table, and object styles), swatches, conditional text, numbered lists, text variables, and master pages for all the documents in the book. When you make changes to the style source file, all or selected documents in the book are synchronized to the file. You can set synchronizing options to specify the features that you want to keep up-to-date in the Synchronize Options dialog box. With the Smart Match Style Groups synchronize option, you can synchronize a book without creating duplicate styles.

  • Synchronize Options. Open the book, click the Options button, click Synchronize Options, select the options you want to synchronize, and then click OK.
  • Set Style Source. Open the book, and then click the Style Source box next to the name of the document.
  • Synchronize Style Source for a Book. Open the book, and then click the Synchronize Book button on the panel.
