Multiple Spreads in Master Sheet

Dec 7, 2012 11:41 AM

Tags: #spreads #master_page #master_spread

Is there a way to create multiple spreads in a master sheet?  I know you can create many pages, but if I have a master sheet that has 4 pages all the pages are connected and I have to worry about the printer's ability to cut precisely for full bleeds.  Instead I would prefer to identify which pages should be part of a spread.

 

Thanks

    let me see... indesign no allow us to created a master sheet for a start like you whant (4 pages), but you can create a normal spread of 4 pages or more, only have to do is allow the spread to shuffle, make you spread whereaver you like and then save all the spread like master.

    You need two masters (maybe more?). Why do you want to creat four pages tha are not acutally part of a single spread in one master? What are you gaining? If you are looking for a way to add a fold-out, make a copy of the first master, or base the new master on it, and add the extra pages.

    I think you may misunderstand the concept of a master page. It's a template on which document pages are based. You can have hundreds of pages based on a single master.

     

    and the maximum number of pages ID allows per spread is 10.
