Let’s say I have 100 page master document that I want to be able to print as either single side pages, or if need be print as double sided pages with a different master applied to the odd vs. even pages. Is there a way to quickly apply a master page to just the even pages rather than typing all the pages out 2,4,6,8,10…100 or rather than ctrl+shifting all the even/odd pages and then applying the master?
I look under the “Apply master” dialog box and the only option i find is “all pages” surprised they don’t have an apply to “even pages” or “odd pages” option.
Lydia is right, but if your list is longer than presented on her link you’ll need to make your own list of odd numbers, which is easy to do in Excel (=”cell above”+2, drag and repeat as needed).
Once I had a list of odd numbers I cut and pasted the table into TextEdit and converted to plain text (which stripped out the table). Then I ran a “find and replace” to change each line return into a comma (,).
The result was a comma separated list of odd numbers which I was able to cut and paste into the “Apply Master to Pages” function.
