Herding Pages

Mix Page Sizes in the Same Document

The one feature I wish InDesign had of QuarkXPress 6.x's is the ability to combine different page sizes and orientations in the same document. In InDesign, I have to maintain a separate file for the tabloid landscape documents that will be folded and bound into my letter-size, portrait-oriented engineering reports. It's hard to keep style sheets consistent among the files, and it's a pain having to repeat every Print, Preflight, and Export to PDF command for each document.


Don't feel like you're missing out, because you wouldn't be able to do much of that in QuarkXPress 6.X anyway. While you can create multiple layouts with different page sizes and orientation in the same XPress project file, you can't run a Print or Export to PDF command on all of them at the same time, you have to do them one-by-one. And of course you can't run a single Preflight on all the layouts, since XPress doesn't offer a Preflight command.
