Hi there!

 

I'm working on a large document. I designed six different page layouts. I have the layouts sitting as my first 6 pages and I've been copying and pasting them to a new page throughout the rest of the document. Once I create a new page, I paste the desired layout in, edit the information for that page, make small changes, add a different picture, update the text, etc. 

 

Is there a better way to make an editable layout than copy paste?

 

I appreciate your help!

Hi, You will find that Master Pages are the way to go. They work like internal templates, allowing you to control the structure of your pages. If you update the Master Page, the controlled pages will be updated accordingly. This is a powerful feature. There are some clear explanations here Pages and spreads in InDesign (adobe.com)
