Navigating Pages

After you insert new pages into a document, you can use the Pages panel, Layout menu commands, and Status bar to navigate between them. As you work with pages in the Pages panel, there are two types of page selections. One targets a page and the other activates a page. A targeted page is a page selected in the Pages panel, while an activated page is a working page in the document window. When you target a page, you can apply a command in the Pages panel even though it may not be the current working page in the document window.
