    Indesign cc. Alternate layout. Master B.

      I am creating an .epub.

       

      QUESTION.

      Does it matter if the layout is vertical or horizontal in Indesign CC ?

       

       

      I followed Anne Marie Concepcion's tutorial for creating an Alternate Layout.

      http://tv.adobe.com/watch/visual-design-cs6/working-with-alternate-layouts/

      It is actually for Indesign CS6.

       

      I Created an alternate layout so now I have two:

      Letter V  which looks like landscape.

      800x600 which looks like portrait.

       

      I thought that I would keep only the 800x600 portrait.

       

      The tutorial shows how you can 'delete' the layout you do not want and then do a 'save as'.

       

      I did this.

       

      But now I  No Longer Have a Master A.

      I only have a Master  B.

       

      QUESTIONS

       

      How can I change this to be called Master A.  ?

       

      With Indesign CC, and with the updated functionality of tablets, does it really matter which layout I use ??

       

       

      I created an ePub in 2010 using Indesign CS5, and I did not use alternate layouts and the ebook seems to be fine on all tablets.

       

      Can someone please clarify these things for me.

       

      Thanks.
