Indesign brochure

Nov 1, 2013 7:43 AM

Hey

 

I'm trying to make a brochure in A4 format.

 

It's supposed to be folded on the sides, so when you open it you can get the full A4 size.

How can i set up a document that does this?

    How many panels? How many sheets of paper involved? We need a lot more info?

    Caveat

     

    File>New Document

     

    Size A4

     

    Make sure Facing Pages is ticked

     

    Set your margins to what you need them to be.

    Do mean it has a Gate Fold?

    All honesty - get a sheet of A4 paper

     

    Fold in both edges until they just about meet in the middle

     

    Mark the folds when folded of where items will go

     

    Then unfold

     

     

    Create a new file that is A4 landscape

     

    Measure your sheet of paper from the left and note where the first fold is

     

    Insert a guide there on your page

     

    Same for the right side

     

     

    Follow your mock layout that you hand folded.

    I think non-facing is easier in these cases -- no offset when scrolling.
