I just started learning Indesign. I was wondering if there is something like a Lib in Flash where you can place objects / groups and paste it into the doc.
what i want to do
On the left side is a small picture (kind of like a profile picture) and under that picture is a small text box which contains a date
To the right there is another Text Box with a header and normal text. There is also a line which divides the headline and basic text.to
Is it possible to make something like a prefab where i build that group with dummy text and i can just drag it on my doc and replace the text with the printable text. And when i want to change the layout of that group i just have to do it once (for example the picture goes on the right side and the line should be removed and a box has to be around it something like that) and it changes all my object groups. I hope you get what i mean. Would be great if someone could explain, how that could work if it is possible
Thank you very much for any help!

Yes. InDesign has a Library panel.
Choose File > New > Library...
Give it a name then click Save to open the Library panel. Drag anything on your page into the Library panel where it will stay available to drag out to any other page or document.
Sounds like you might be able to use Master Page items.
