Layering in InDesign is global for a document. It is not possible to turn on or off individual layers automatically for a page or spread.
Thank you for the quick reply and answer.
Is there another better way for doing, what i want to achieve?
Layers go across pages. When you turn them on or off, you turn them on or off for the document. This method will not work for you.
Instead, use more than one master, aka Multiple Masters. Optional, but useful in your case, you can have a parent/child relationship with the masters so if you update the parent, the child will change. In the Pages panel, apply the appropriate master.
Thinking about it again, another possibility is Conditional Text . Currently all text is set to the Show Condition. You can create multiple conditions and choose to hide or show text with that condition with one click.
Do either of these solutions work for what you are trying to achieve? If not, explain further!
Here is a third way, you can use a separate document for your base layers.
You can turn layers on and off on individually placed objects, so instead of having your layers on a master page, use a separate InDesign document for the base layers and place it as an object into your document, then use Object layer options to adjust the layers on each page.
So if i understand you correctly:
I will save the file with the layers I've already made as "Document A''
Then i will open a new document as "Document B''
I'll configure a page in document A, with the layers I've made and copy the whole page to document B.
Is this what you meant?
No. Luke does not mean copy the document. He said go to documnent B, choose File > Place and place Document A into Document B. Then go to Object > Layer Options where you can turn layers on an off. It's a creative solution and a good one to try.
I tried what you explained. This will place the object with the correct layers inside document B.
But is the document i cannot edit a text field or a image field, because the page will be placed as an image inside document B
Yes. It places a PDF Preview of Doc A into Document B. Make the edits in Doc A and make sure the link to the file is updated in Doc B.
The advantage to you is that you can turn the layers on and off as you wanted to do. It's the only way to accomplish what you asked for.
With the PDF preview i couldn't do what I wanted to do.
But i've found out how to get exactly wat I originally wanted:
I've made multiple layouts on 3 rows on a page.
Then I found out about the CC Libraries:
I've selected the text field and image field and saved it in the CC Libraries.
Now I just take an empty page and pick the right layout from the library
