Adobe InDesign CS4: I've got a very large document, divided into sections (chapters). Currently, there are section markers on various pages, with each section defined by a labelled submaster (so I can see from the Pages panel where each section begins and ends). When I add content to various sections, the section markers no longer align as the pages reflow (because the markers are attached to the actual page numbers and not the content). How can I fix this so that adding content to sections continues within the submaster style / section marker for that section and not reflow over the pages?

We want to upgrade from Adobe Creative suite 1 to at least CS 3 at our office. We use mostly Illustrator and Photoshop. But the upgrade seems to be more important for Illustrator than photoshop. -It needs to be relatively cheap to get approved so I am wondering the following: a) Would it make sense to just upgrade illustrator or would that cause compatibility issues with the older version of photoshop? b) We need to upgrade on 4 machines? How many upgrades would we need to buy. c) What are the benefits of CS 4 vs CS 3? d) Sicne CS4 is out does that mean CS 3 is cheaper?

I'm interested in learning more about design and illustration, and I live in Florida. I thought about attending a conference here in Orlando (so no hotel or travel fees), but being new to this I am not sure about the presenters, and the price tag is hefty (even with my discount code, $395 for three days). So, creative Mefites, tell me what you think! [more inside]
