I am looking to design a product sleeve and therefore create a four sided design to a specific size for production (example attached). Appreciate any advice on how to insert a template or guidelines to a sheet? TIA

Hi @DanCasey and welcome to the forums.

I'd just create a page that's as tall as all four sides and then add horizontal guides using View > Guides. This command allows you to create guides with precise measurements instead of dragging them out of the ruler which wouldn't be as accurate.

Cheers

Plus the height of the flap, I would think.

Only for interest - why is the first (top) part only 84.3 wide?
If I understand the shape and principle of the package correctly, I would expect this upper part (A) to be 85 wide, and the last part (D) to be narrower (i.e. 128,3 - 0,7), because from it you need to subtract the thickness of the flap that will be glued to the back part A.
