Is it better to "Place" a manuscript from Word into InDesign as one document, or is it better copy the manuscript chapter by chapter. In other words, is it better to create 20 chapters, and therefore 20 chapter files, and string them together in ID?

 

Thanks

Thanks. The pros for me on using an INDB file, and INDD files, is that I can easily move chapters around; and the chapter documents are not as unwieldly. Having said that, the next book I may try both approaches and see which I like better. Thanks for the input.
