Step 1. Plan the project

Although you can make changes at most steps in this process, the more you can plan before you start, the less work you will have to do to correct any problems later. Here are some things you need to plan:

Parts of book or report required. What pages will be in the master document and what will be in the subdocuments? (The ToC and index must be in the master document.)

Consider as an example a book with the parts given in the table below.

Part Location
  Title (cover) page       In master document    
  Copyright page   In master document
  Table of Contents   In master document
  Preface (Foreword)   Subdocument
  Chapters 1 to 8   Subdocuments
  Appendixes A, B   Subdocuments
  Index   In master document

Page, paragraph, character, frame, and numbering styles. See Chapter 6 (Introduction to Styles) and Chapter 7 (Working with Styles) for instructions on how to create or modify styles and examples of the use of styles in book design.

Fields and AutoText entries, as required. See other chapters in this book for ideas.
