It’s likely that once you’re working on your project, pages may need to be added or deleted. Keep in mind the total number of pages should be divisible by 4 (or 16 for Smyth Sewn binding types) when you submit your project.
Note: Consider moving pages instead of deleting and adding if you’re only trying to re-arrange pages. See the article about Moving Pages for more instruction.
Navigate to the Ladder to add or delete pages from your book.
Click the Add Pages button
Note: If you do not see the Add Pages button, please speak with your yearbook advisor.
Choose the type of page that you would like to add
- Pages - this impacts the final page count of your book.
Note: Chat with your yearbook provider if your final page count needs to be adjusted as it may alter the final book cost.
- Practice Pages - allow you to play around with the page design tools or begin working on several themes before choosing one. Practice pages will not be printed in your book and do not impact your final page count.
Note: Save final designs as templates to be used on pages, find details on saving templates here.
Note: Practice Pages are added as a spread; so adding 1 Practice Page will result in a left and right facing page.
- Practice Covers - get a chance to play around with cover designs or have a cover designing contest. Practice covers will not be printed.
Note: Save parts of your final design as Snippets to use on your cover, find details on saving Snippets here.
- Practice Inside Covers or End Sheets – will only appear when the the Inside Cover or Endsheets are being customized in the printed book. Just like all the other practice areas, they do not appear in the printed book, but offer the ability to design a variety of options before committing to a final design.
Note: If you enable Inside Cover Printing or Custom Endsheets from your Project Settings, please communicate this change to your yearbook provider as it may alter the final cost of your book.
Next, fill in the number of pages you would like to add and indicate where to add them. Click Add.
