Typefi Sections define divisions within a publication that break it into logical chunks (such as chapters in a book).
Typefi Sections specify which InDesign master pages to use, and in what order.
Typefi Sections define the sequence in which master pages are applied to document pages during the automated page composition process. The source content in a publication is organised into one or more Typefi Sections, which during page composition use the master pages defined by each Typefi Section to create document pages until all the content is placed according to the rules defined in each Typefi Section.
The master pages contain the repeating text and graphic elements that appear throughout a publication (such as headers, footers, page numbers). For example, if you are creating a book template, you could set up a Typefi Section for each master page in the template, including the Cover, Copyright page, Table of Contents, Front Matter, Chapters, and Back Matter.
Each Typefi Section may use one or multiple master pages. For instance, a Typefi Section named "Chapter" may be configured to insert two master pages: one for the chapter opener page, and another for the continuation pages.
Typefi Sections specify the pagination settings.
Typefi Sections specify the pagination settings, which include:
- the page numbering style
- page numbering mode (whether the page numbering starts at 1 again, or continues from the previous Typefi Section)
- a section prefix
- a section marker
Typefi Sections can contain Typefi Section Fields.
Typefi Section Fields are content placeholders that represent the position and formatting of metadata within a Typefi Section. Typefi Section Fields retain their value throughout a single Typefi Section. Typefi Section Fields could be used for chapter titles, chapter numbers, running headers or footers, and figure numbers.
