5. Different Page Sizes

For years, people have requested the ability to use different page sizes in the same document. Their wish is granted. Using multiple page sizes in one document is great if you need to print a book cover with a spine, enlarge a page for a fold-out map, or keep all the design elements of an business project—letterhead, business card, and envelope—in the same document.

* To create a different page size quickly, select the page in the Pages panel and choose a preset from the Edit Page Size menu at the bottom of the Pages panel.

* For more advanced options, use the Page tool to click a page in the layout window, and then use the options in the Control panel to determine the page dimensions and appearance.

But what about printing documents with multiple page sizes? No problem. The Print dialog box includes widgets that make it easy to print a range of same-sized pages.
