I am new to Indesign and starting to design a trifold restaurant menu. I took a sample menu and measured the dimensions which are roughly 5.5"x11" for each spread.
However, I know that the inner spread should be a different size, possibly smaller or larger. I guess my question is what is the proper way to set up this tri-fold template.
Any tips or advice in setting this up will be greatly appreciated.
IF finished/folded size is to be 5.5X11--then your panels should be (viewed flat)
outside view from L-R 5.4375--5.5--5.5
inside view from L-R 5.5--5.5--5.4375
if you want I can draw you a picture-but-it seems clear--pages can be set to 16.4375 x 11 with guides placed as noted above.
in other words--the inside panel should be 1/16" shorter than the other two panels
