I am totally new to InDesign and have a question. How can I add the page number right next to a vertical line on all pages? This is an example:
If you would be as detailed as possible it would be really great!
Thank you and have a nice day!
Repeating elements are added to the master pages in InDesign.
Thank you so much!
You are welcome. We are always happy to help.
I have a follow up question for this subject: How do I remove the line and the page number only from the first and last page of the book?
That is easy.
Just apply another master page (without line and page number) to your document first and last page.
There are two options.
thanks for replying.
I'm running into another problem. Here is what the master page looks like in my case: (note how the right page line and page number are a bit shifted to the left)
How this looks on pages from 2 to 13 (from 15 total):
So far so good, but only on the last pages it looks like this:
Now when I edit the master page so it's not shifted to the right, page 15 will be displayed correctly but all other ones will not show the line and page number.
All pages are A4 size, so I'm a bit confused. Could you please help me with this?
It looks like overrides to me:
Effective use of master pages is essential for long document layout. When you have some downtime, make a plan to figure how they work. You will find free videos, tutorials and of course the Adobe Helpx page—all of which will get you up to speed if you don't want to invest in training (which, as a career trainer, I always encourage!). 😊
