How to Move Pages from One Document to Another

In this week’s free InDesign Secrets tip on lynda.com, I reveal how simple it is to move pages from one InDesign document to another!

As Colleen Wheeler, content curator at LDC wrote: “Moving entire pages to new documents, formatting and all, can be a very convenient way to create excerpts, variations, and compilations, but this is one of those relatively simple, common desires that can vex you if you don?t know where to look. By accessing one of the three instances of the Move Pages command, or simply dragging-and-dropping from one document window to another, you can quickly move an InDesign page, spread, or entire file to another InDesign document with all formatting intact. Sometimes during this process a common glitch called overset text may occur. In this tutorial, David also shows you how to deal with this glitch by quickly adjusting the baseline preferences.”
