I have to resize the format of a book (needs to be smaller) and I plan to do this with the alternative layout function, using the "resize" liquid layout rule. (No worries, text size etc is all still fine.) The indb file consists of various documents. The resizing works fine in the first document and I would like to sync the alternative layout of the first document to the other documents of the book. Is there a way to do this?
I am using Indesign CC 2015.
I appreciate your comments and hints.
Alternate layout were designed for a totally different purpose than books. It was designed to be able to create different sizes and aspect ratios for digital devices like phones or tablets.
I don't think what you're trying to do it is possible to do with the program interface. It's possible there's a script developed by somebody but I wouldn't hold our breath.
thank you for your fast reply. I was afraid that this might not be possible.
