Hi,

I'm new to infinity publisher and want to create a flash card deck with identical front faces for all cards, and content that is different on each back face.  Can anyone share a publisher setup that I could start with? or point me to the best training for setup?  Thank you.

Hi @gregj and welcome!

 I've uploaded a possible setup.

Same image on the left-hand side of the spreads, pages numbered on the right.

Main thing to note is that when you create the document, Orientation is horizontal, Facing pages is checked, Arrange is Horizontally, Start on is Left, number of pages is 52. Dimensions and colour settings are up to you.

Cheers, H

Just to add: for a publication (magazine, book etc), "Start on" would be right. For a pack of cards it would be on the left to give 52 pairs.

Hey, Thanks so much for taking the time to do this.  But the card design I have in mind is vertical.  So I assume that I just set the arrange setting to vertical with facing pages?  And since the front is always the same design, do I create and use a master for the front?

Yes.

Depending on the print process you might not need facing pages with lots of front page copies. Instead you create the front page as a single page, like the others, and the printer will use this single front page as the back of all other cards. Note that your card deck isn't like a brochure: it has no specific page order, nor left/right pages which need to fit in the spine. That's why single pages will work, too, – with less pages, since the front exists only once in the document.

Another option is having facing pages but using them for the 2x2 pairs of one color. Then the front page could be a single page, too, either the first as single/right page or as the last page in the document.

– You should check this aspects with the print provider.
