Hi,

I have a 70 page booklet that recently went through edits and needs to have its margins tweaked. How do I resize the primary text frame so that the margins are smaller, and the text frame bigger, without copy pasting the entire document? (I know if I made the margins bigger, and the text frame smaller, they would adjust automatically). I feel like it's a very simple solution that I'm just not seeing.

Thanks,

Andy

Hi Andy:

  1. Navigate to the A-Master.
  2. Layout > Margins and Columns.
  3. Check Enable Layout Adjustment and change the margins.
  4. When you click OK, if the primary frames were on the guides, they will move with the guides. If not, just adjust them manually.
  5. The body pages using that master—or one based on it—will update automatically.
