    Splitting A Page InDesign

    jshhndsd91 Level 1

      Hi Adobe Community,



      I created an A4 document with a landscape orientation of just one page and would like to know how to divide the page in half using ruler guides?


      I want the guide placed at the center, equally dividing the page.



      Thanks in advance.

          Do you want to have a double sided A5 layout? THen you should change your document set up to A5!

          Guides to divide an A4 to 2 A5 is not the proper way.

            @jshndsd91 – Willi is right on this.


            But if you really want a guide at the center of the page, do the following:


            1. Double-click the "cross-hair" where the horizontal and vertical rulers meet to reset the zero point

            2. Drag a guide out of the vertical ruler, do not de-select the guide

            3. Set the x-position of the guide to "297/2mm"

            (InDesign will do the math for you regradless the current meassurement units.)
