Help! I need an answer ASAP! I have uploaded an formatted my book in InDesign from a letter-sized document from Word. However, my book dimensions are 5.5 x 8.5 inches, not letter sized. I set up the document for the correct book size, and changed the increments in preferences to inches to make sure. However, the InDesign file is showing the same number of pages as my Word doc. This should not be the case. I need a accurate page count to complete the book cover ASAP.
I also need guidance on how to eliminate the additional pages in my InDesign book file that are not needed without inadvertantly deleting what I have created. When I tried to reduce the number of pages in the file right now, I received a warning that "objects are on the pages that would be deleted, and if I wished to proceed." Doesn't InDesign delete pages from the end of the document forward, rather than the start of the document?! I am so confused.
You may have overset text. Go to the last page and click on the frame holding the text. Look at the bottom right for indication if the text is overset. If so, add a page, click on the outport for the overset frame, hold shift down and click on the page you just created. It will make as many pages as needed.
