Add or delete pages

When you add or delete pages, you'll need to be working on the foreground of your publication. If you're not, click the Close Master Page button on the Master Page tab before using the following procedures.

Add a page

  1. In your open publication, turn to the page that will come before or after the pages you want to add.
  2. On the Insert tab, select the Page button.
  3. Select either:
  • Insert blank page to insert a new blank page after the currently selected page

     Note    If you're in two-page spread view, two pages will be inserted.

  • Insert duplicate page to insert a new page containing the same content as the currently selected page.

     Note    If you are in a Two-Page Spread view you will be asked if you want to insert duplicates for both pages, just the left page, or just the right page.

  • Insert page to bring up the Insert Page dialog box, select the options you want. and then click OK.

Delete a page

When you delete a page, only text and objects specific to that page are deleted along with the page. For example, if the page contains text from a chain of connected frames (frame: A space, shown onscreen as a box, that contains a particular element of your publication. Types of frames include text boxes, table frames, and picture frames.), the text will simply move to an adjacent page.

  1. In your open publication, turn to the page you want to delete.
  2. In the Page Navigation pane, select the page to delete.
  3. On the Page Design tab, in the Pages group, click Delete.
    If you're in two-page spread view, the Delete Page dialog box will appear. Select the option you want, and then click OK.

     Tip    To avoid turning the current right-hand pages into left-hand pages, delete an even number of pages. .
