Using the Pages Panel

The Pages panel allows you to visually display all the pages in your document. The Pages panel shows thumbnails for each page. At the top of the panel are the master pages for the document. A master page contains elements that are repeated on every page. When you’re working with a multi-page document with or without multi-layouts, the Pages panel is an essential part of working with pages. You can add and remove pages as well as navigate to and from pages. The Pages panel, like all panels, provides an Options menu where you can select page-related commands and Pages panel view and display options. The view options allow you to view page icons horizontally, vertically, or by alternate layouts (for different size mobile devices). The display options allow you to change page icons size, position, and location. In addition, you can also set options to show or hide icons for page transparency, transition, and spread rotation.
