I'm having an issue with combining some documents. Usually I use the "move pages" command and tell the pages to integrate with another document. However, because of the new alternate layout feature, both documents have the default layouts as "Letter V". So when I move pages from one document to the end of another, it creates a new alternate layout labeled "Letter V2" and "Letter V3" etc. Is there a way to make the pages just go into the main layout of Letter V without creating a new alternate layout? How do I merge alternate layouts created in the integrated document? All documents are the same page size and orientation.
Thank you kindly,
Select the layout you wish to "merge" then from the page palette flyout choose "numbering and sections options" Uncheck "Start new section"
Thank you. I was trying to do that yesterday, but it was grayed out. It seemed to work alright today.
I am having this exact same problem with InDesign CC 2015. When I go to "numbering and sections options," "Start Section" is grayed out and checked. Very frustrating and of course I am on deadline as I struggle with this. I don't get why this is now an issue, whereas in past versions it was not.
