I found plenty of introductory explanations of sections. However I created a new section e.g. in page 7 but realized it should've been page 8. Is there any easy way to move the section start to a different page? Basically I can rearrange any pages in my new section by dragging them around - except for the section's first page. I wish I could just drag that little black arrow...
Obviously I can go to page 7, disable the section start, go to page 8's settings, enable the section and re-enter all the numbering, prefix, and marker data - but that's not exactly streamlined.
I'm using CS3. If this is something that can't be done in CS3 but was added later it'd be good to know too.
You give the answer yourself, and the time involved is not lengthy.
I have the same question. I wonder if it's been addressed since posted three years ago.
I realize DrewPost's solution is not lengthy, but time can add up quickly in a workflow, especially on a long document. It's also unlike InDesign not to have this be more streamlined. In addition to adding time, it increases chances for error when all the settings need to be re-typed each time. So, I'm wondering, does anyone know if Adobe has addressed this issue yet?
If you collect your section documents into an InDesign book file, you can make use of automatic numbering that runs from section to section based on how you arrange them in the book file.
