In the office where I work there is Indesign CC 2015.

In a page I would want to create 4 columns: A, B, C and D.

The columns A and C must be narrower than the columns B and D.

The columns A and C must have the same width, the same for the columns B and D, that are those wider

The page is 210 mm.

The borders 13 mm for every side: total 26 mm.

The space among the columns is 5 mm.

How can I make the columns A and C of the same width and the same for the columns B and D?

PS: if you want, you can reply in Italian, thanks.

Ciao

il sistema più veloce per dividere la pagina in colonne con diversa larghezza ma proporzionali fra di loro è creare una griglia modulare.

Menù LAYOUT > CREA GUIDE: 6 colonne con 5 mm di distanza. Ne utilizzerai 1 per le colonne A e C e 2 per le colonne B e D.

In questo modo le colonne A - C e B - D avranno la stessa larghezza.

Se preferisci, puoi creare le guide sulla pagina mastro e cancellare quelle al centro delle colonne più larghe. Oppure puoi tenerle e utilizzarle in maniera modulare, alternando le colonne strette e quelle larghe sulle altre pagine.

Spero sia stata utile.

Hi!

Like that?

If is true, after to define the number of columns you have to go here (menu view) to unlock the guides.

Then, with the selection tool on the master page or on another page change the columns by dragging.

I hope this helps.
