Master Page Setup
Opens the Master Page Setup dialog box allowing you to change the attributes of the current master page, i.e., page size and orientation, margin and column guides, and the double-sided and facing pages modes.

See: Documents > Master Pages

Page Setup
Opens the Page Setup dialog box allowing you to change the master page on which the current page is based, and whether the master page objects are shown in the front, shown in the back or not shown. You may also assign a name and a description to the current page.

Opens the Document Setup dialog box allowing you to set up how the pages of the document are numbered as a whole. You may also assign a name and a description to the document.

Chapter Setup
This command is available only if chapters exist in the document. It can be used to override document settings for the current chapter. You may also assign a name and a description to the current chapter.

See: Documents > Pagination > Page Numbers in Chapter

Insert Page
Inserts one or more pages. By default, the page(s) will be inserted before the current page in the current chapter, but you may override these settings with the Chapter and Insert pop-up menu in the Insert Page dialog box. You can also select the master page to use for the newly inserted page(s). Note that it is not necessary to insert pages at the end of the document because PageStream automatically creates new pages as you place objects on them.

See: Documents > Pages > Page Arrangement > Inserting pages

Create Text Frames
Opens the Create Text Frames dialog box allowing you to create automatically text frames based on the column margins, number of columns and gutter specified. Default values are taken from the current master page.

See: Text > Putting Text on the Page > Creating Text Frames

Link Text Frames
After choosing that command, the mouse pointer will change to an empty text frame shape. Clicking on a text frame will make the mouse pointer change to a full text frame shape and indicate where the text will be linked from. Clicking on another frame will then link it to the frame you previously clicked on.

See: Text > Articles > Text Frame Links > Linking text frames

Unlink Text Frames
The insertion point must be in a text frame for this command to be available. This command will break links before and after the text frame. If you want to unlink in only one direction, hold down a Shift key before choosing the Unlink Text Frames command.

See: Text > Articles > Text Frame Links > Unlinking text frames
