You can either package now, even though you don't want to, or you can select all the links in the links palette and from the contextual menu, select Copy Links To, and select your destination folder there.
Blank pages - you can either insert a blank page at the end of each document in your book, if they finish on a right-hand page, or I think it can be done automatically through the book palette - but I've only seen that in passing and haven't tried it myself.
Regarding question #2, you can do it with Paragraph Style Options>Keep Options>Start Paragraph>On Next Odd Page.
Thanks, Copy Links To is exactly what I needed.
Sorry to be so dim about this, but I'm not clear on what I apply Paragraph Style Options>Keep Options>Start Paragraph>On Next Odd Page to.
I tried applying it to the Chapter Heading paragraph style, but that doesn't seem to work.
For a chapter headline I would suggest:
- Keep with the next 3 lines
- Keep together all lines in Paragraph
- Start Paragraph on next odd page.
And don't forget to use space after the paragraph and avoid any empty paragraph after.
