How to modify the size of my book (but not the text frames)

Recommended Posts

Hi and good morning from Holland,

I am new to Publisher. The other day I started working on a fairly simple book, size paperback. Took me a lot of time, steep learning curve, but I like it a lot.

I am now stumbling on a problem, though. So far, I am rather satisfied with the looks of the book, but I think the margins are too wide.The sheet mirror is okay, but there's too much white space on all sides of it.

In the Master Page, I am changing the size of the book (6" x 9") to somewhat smaller. But then, the text in the frames in the book looks messy.

My question: How can I shrink the book size and at the same time, keep the text frames unmodified?

Thanks for your help!

Hi @Treinramp,

Welcome to the Affinity Forums :)

To change the size of your document, navigate to File > Spread Setup, here make sure that All Spreads is selected in the top left, then set the Dimensions for your page(s).

Here you will also see the Scaling tab, where you can decide if you want your objects to Scale with the spread change, or to Anchor to the page/spread and not change size with the page.

I hope this helps!
