How do I make a page ladder

Postby MeganP » 20 Feb 2014, 09:33

I've been hired to produce a book to commemorate the 25th anniversary of a local company. Back when I worked in publishing (1992-2001), we always had a working page plan (book map, page ladder... I've heard it called many things). I used to create it myself in Word (or maybe Quark) with little boxes that I would manually move around as the layout changed. It would tell me that the article about skiing was on pp102-104, and the food section ran from pp115-122, etc. This seems like the kind of thing that should be automatically generated in Quark these days. Is it? How do I do it?If it is not, I'm jumping over to the Quark Suggestions forum and adding it there.Thanks for your help.

Not sure if this is what you're after but you can print your document in thumbnail view: Print>Pages>Thumbnails box to be ticked. HTH.
