I've been working on a siddur, or Jewish prayerbook, in InDesign. However, all of my training has been in the "document", creation within InDesign, which is to say, I can make perfectly decent layouts, but I don't know how to string everything together.

I did attempt to compile a "book" with the files which I already had, however the result was that I lost all of my RTL formatting and needed to completely redo it. How do I compile an RTL "book" in InDesign?

  • Have you Googled "How to create a book in InDesign"? – Lauren-Clear-Monica-Ipsum Feb 8 '15 at 22:46
  • @LaurenIpsum, I have, however I when I followed the instructions I found, I discovered the above problem. – NoahM Feb 8 '15 at 22:50
  • I may be wrong here, but I believe you need the multilingual version of InDesign to support RTL publications. – Scott Feb 9 '15 at 0:28
  • @Scott, I have that version – NoahM Feb 9 '15 at 0:29
