Is there a tool in InDesign that allows creating an indd layout file with elements that appear in larger amount of documents that can be edited with changes appearing in every file using this layout? Some kind of link between different indd files? I'm knew to this program and don't have a clue how to even define the problem precisely.
Thanks in advance!
Yes. Search the Help files for "Place and Link."
If you are talking about full layouts, like with headers, footers and common elements, then Master Pages could work well for you.
Add all your files to an InDesign book, and set one document as the source. Then, when you make updates to the Master Pages in that document, you can choose to synchronize the other documents, and their master pages will update (as long as you haven't overridden items on them).
Thank you very much for your help! I'm new to the porgram and still learning.
