Hello!

 

I have been tasked with creating a 400+ page catalog. I am just starting to set the document up, and am wondering if there is a way to save it in sections or chunks, so I don't have to open up a 400+ page document every time. 

 

Additionally, having an index will be very important, can you link the sectioned documents into one index?

 

Thanks!

It sounds to me like you need some traiining. You can break a long document into books. You can create tables of contents and indexes across books. 

 

My suggestion is that you go to LinkedIn Learning and using a 30-day free trial go through Mike Rankin's video, "Creating Long Documents"
