Default Custom sections in books

I am creating a book using the automated Reunion feature. It’s causing me to rewrite half of my file, but that’s probably good. However, I need to add some longer non-traditional sections.

I added some custom sections that were short (single page fan chart, etc) but one is a multi page section of text (court transcripts). Unfortunately only the first page shows up. How do I extend this custom section to allow all of the pages to show?

Thanks

If the content for your multi-page section is in the form of a pdf or rtf file - simply drag that file and drop it on the list of sections in your book project.

Once the file has been added to the list of sections, you can name the section and position it to the desired location in your book.

Thanks for the reply but it doesnt help or address my problem.

I created the section. I renamed and moved it, but it will only show the first page. How do I get it to show all of the pages?

If you created the section by clicking on the '+' button, the section will be limited to one page. You will have to create the section again by dragging a file into the sections list in your book project.

Thanks that helps

But now I cant immediately find the original file. Is there a way to find the location in the book?

The location of the original file would not be saved anywhere in the book project.
