Page Layout / Re-sizing

Hello ,


Not sure if this is a simple question of not.


I want to make a small version of my manual for people to carry around in leaflet form.


I would  have one page on a quarter size A4 (A6), but also would like the option of spreading an illustration over two or four quarters.


When printed on A4, each page would fit a quater of the page.


How do I set the page up?

    This is an existing A4 document?


    It seems like you'd start by reflowing it into another template of A6 size. Import the A4 Flow A as an inset for example.


    When printing the A6 version to A4, you'd select 4-up in the print driver menu.


    It might even be possible to render the A6 to a separate A4 PDF by selecting 4-up in the Distiller or PDFwriter menus. In any case, you do this, with more exotic page order control, by using a 3rd party impositioning app, such as Quite Imposing.


    If you're contemplating doing different page sizes in the same output stream, that's more complicated.
