Resize an entire spread or the left and right pages independently. Build and apply master pages of different sizes. Expand the pasteboard for more working room. All from InDesign's own Pages palette. And, the free reader plug-in means never worrying about compatibility with service providers. Take control of your pages with Page Control for InDesign CS and CS2.
Free reader for editing page control created documents can be installed from the same installer as Page Control.
Here are some key features of "Page Control":
· Multi-size pages
Page Control plug-in adds a new feature to the standard Pages palette. Resize page(s) item is added to the panel menu.
· Vertical spreads
With Page Control, pages can be placed on top of each other instead of next to each other. This will prevent strained necks epidemy outbreaks among designers in the time of the year calendars are designed.
· Resizing pages
Pages can be resized including or excluding content. Content can be resized retaining page ratio or to fit page margins.
· Rotating pages
For easy redesign from landscape and portrait page formats, you can rotate the original pages including or excluding page content.
· Editable page alignment
Regardless of the page size, you can also set the mutual vertical positioning of pages in a spread.
· Custom-size pasteboard
Page Control plug-in enables you to set custom size to the pasteboard area. This feature is useful when you need to make space for many items, or leave longer comments in the design area.
· Compatibility of documents
All documents created with the Page Control can still be opened and edited without this plug-in. Only the document setup page size pages can be added without the plug-in.
For safe moving of differently sized pages around in the document without Page Control, we recommend using our free Page Reader plug-in.
