I completed the first chapter of my book. I'd like to make a template of it before stripping out the text of the chapter and then use the template to model each successive chapter.
Choose File > Save As and choose InDesign Template (.indt file). Within the template file, delete your text. Keep your styles. When you open the Template file, it will force you to save it as a new name (it opens Untitled).
