Change page size

Understand how to change the size of a page in Adobe FrameMaker.

  1. Make the appropriate document window or book window active. If a book window is active, select the documents you want to affect.

  2. Choose Format > Page Layout > Page Size.

  3. Do one of the following:

    • Choose a standard size from the Page Size drop-down list. The correct dimensions appear in the Width and Height text boxes.

    • Enter dimensions in the Width and Height text boxes. Custom appears in the drop-down list. The custom page size you specify can be small, depending on the document’s margin settings, or as large as 216 inches by 216 inches (approximately 548 centimeters by 548 centimeters).

  4. Click Set.

    Note: When you generate the PDF output for a document with page size bigger than A4, some content may not fit on the page and not get published properly. To prevent the loss of content, you need to add the flag UsePDFResolution=300 in the maker.ini file under the folder <%appdata%\Adobe\FrameMaker\17>. To know more about PDF output see, Generate a PDF.
Note: If the document contains custom master pages, FrameMaker prevents change to a page size that cannot accommodate the text frames on those master pages.
