I have Tool Manuals that I am producing and when I place a .indd file into one of these InDesign documents the formating is not the same size.
I can build two .indd files with the exact same info with the same margins, paragraph styles, etc. in both. But when I place one .indd into the other the placed .indd file is not the same size, it is smaller.
Is there something I'm over looking that makes it not come in the same?
What size is the frame you put it into?
Placing a page from a document works just like placing an image. If you scale it, it will change size.
If you work in InDesign CS6 you should consider to use Alternative Layouts. You can add a conpletely different Layout to the same document or to a different document. Changes in the orignal contant (change of text, replacement of placed content and images) need only an update of the links in the ALs.
Reading your comment made me see my problem, maybe I was looking at all this to hard or something on Friday.
Thanks for your help...
