Hi, I'm working on a book with a Hebrew to Latin text, and I was requested to set the same numbering for each facing pages, like 1:1, 2:2, 3:3. I tried to insert it like an A:A inside my master but it's not working. How can I do that?

I suppose that this is text from the Bible, Latin Vulgata on the left and Hebrew on the right.

I do not understand what the numbering is? The same passage in Latin uses much less space as the Hebrew text. In the image you show us a transcription of the Hebrew text to latin letters, not Latin itself.

On the master should not be anything which belongs to the content.

It is not ideal, but I would start like this:

  1. Set uo 2 documents: 1 in the size of your pages and with page number placeholder on the master. The other in the size of the spread, no page numbers.
  2. Work on the 2nd document. Create guide lines, where the colums end.
  3. Create a 3 column table, latin—empty for the spine—Hebrew and insert the content.
  4. Place that document into the other document.

Hi Willi!

 

It's supposed to make the original on the right and the translation and transliteration on the left. I understood what you said but is there any way to make it easy to fix? I've tried to create a master like "A" and "A" facing together but it doesn't work or seems not possible. 😞

I have a picture that a book that does depict exactly what I'd like to make, it should be like that (look that there is 319 in both pages, that is what I want to do in my project)
