versioning. how do i do it?

versioning. how do i do it?

im new to indesign and am having trouble finding info on document versioning.

for example, if i am doing a national weekly circular for a hardware store, each region has its own version (pricing mainly)

in the past (in quark xpress) you'd simply section the document into 8 page chunks, each comprising one entire flyer. using this method, i'd have only 8 master pages and only have to manage the price changes on each layout page.

in indesgn however, sectioning does not work so transparently. the software keeps inserting section prefixes. i can see a benefit of this in book/chapter publication. but, it does not work so well when each section must stand out as its own entity (dallas' page 1 shouldnt read A-1)

does anyone have a proper solution, workaround or 3rd party plugin solution for doing this type of document versioning?


RE: versioning. how do i do it?

Inserting the section prefix is optional. Look at your Pages palette, double click on the little, black, upside down triangle that rests directly above a page icon the palette. That's a section indicator. Double-clicking opens the options. It sounds like you've got a section prefix set when you don't want one. Deleting whatever is in the Section Prefix field will get rid of the unwanted prefix.
