Inserting Pages

Most documents will be more than one page, so inserting new pages is a common practice in InDesign. You can quickly add a new blank page to a document using the Pages panel. You have several different methods to complete the task. You can use the New Page button on the page, drag a master page to the document area in the Pages panel, or use the Insert Pages command on the Options menu. If you’re inserting only one or two pages, the first two methods work the best. If you want to insert multiple pages, the Insert Pages command is your best option, where you can use the Insert Pages dialog box to set additional options.
