Review: Things to Remember
1. Automatic numbers don’t always start with page 1.
2. If you want to modify content on a page that’s linked to a master page, use the Selection tool ( ), Shift+Control+click (Windows) or Shift+Command+click (Mac OS) on content that is linked to a master page to break the link in order to select this locked content.
3. You can access styles created in other InDesign documents by using the Load Styles command found in the panel menu of the Paragraph or Character Styles panels, to import styles created in other documents.
