Part 4: Building Documents > Creating, Opening, and Saving Documents

14. Creating, Opening, and Saving Documents

Creating new documents is one of InDesign’s most straight-forward procedures. In the New Document dialog box (see Figure 14-1), you can define your document’s specifications, including orientation (portrait or landscape), page size (from 1/6-inch per side to a maximum size of 18-feet per side), size of margins, and number of columns. The Master Text Frame feature is just like the Automatic Text Box checkbox in XPress: It creates a text frame within the margins of the master page. InDesign also lets you enter a number of pages (XPress doesn’t let you do this, but PageMaker does). Your documents can be up to 9,999 pages long, for those of you who are counting.
