Hi @simonsmb ,

 

You have a few options.

 

  1. You can create 6 pages in Indesign and place the "zoned" content on each page and export to PDF.
  2. Create your 6 page document. Place your content. Fron the Pages Panel, uncheck Allow Document Pages to Shuffle. Pick up the Page tool and move pages, change orientation, etc. NB: Movement is limited.
  3. Take your content into Illustrator. Create 6 artboards, Manipulate them as you need them, save as PDF. You can move artboards anywhere you'd like.
  4. Create 6 pages of the exact same large artwork page in Indesign. Export to PDF. Open in Acrobat. Using the crop tool, you can crop individual pages as you need them.
