Each page has the same layout, but 'd want to be able to edit the pages 'facing'. When I make an template with "R" & "L" pages (although quite identical), I cannot import the text automatically. I would have to make a textbox on each page seperately, and then link em al together. That's quite a lot of work for 60 pages. Is there an alternative?

in the "new" dialog: facing pages + automatic text frames ...
