Could we change the spreads?

  1. I don't always work using facing pages but still wish to use spreads
  2. Could we also change the number of pages in a spread ( I can go as high as 10+ pages in a spread on a regular basis)
  3. Could we also have different page sizes in the same document (in height as well as width)?
  4. Could we also be able to colour code the pages

I use InDesign a lot and these are the core feature I use on a daily basis, see the screenshot of InDesign to illustrate my point

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums.

Each page sits on a spread. The spread dimensions can be set using the "Spread Setup..." dialog available on the context toolbar (Select tool but when nothing is selected) for the current page/spread.

Hi, I need to lay pages one next to another (for example when doing a leaflet), but I don't understand if this function is available at the moment. This is useful to move pages around and locking them horizontally as needed, as much as they are needed just like in the posted screenshot

Hi Patrick,

I'd like to add support to Greg1's feature request. The feature has also been raised in this thread started by Natters...

The ability to be able to add multiple pages/spreads together with the ability to adjust individual page sizes, e.g. three pages for a book cover so the centre spread width can be easily adjusted as the page count changes is an important one for many print jobs, brochures, books, tri-fold leaflets with the ability to output the PDF with the addition of fold marks for the spine/folds. Having to create your book artwork and then find another application simply to create the cover seems slightly short sighted...

I think without it you have a great application for producing the content of a brochure/book but it's missing the ability to easily and effectively create the artwork for the cover when a spine is required or crop marks on a tri-fold, so I like to endorse this as a feature request, even though it has been mentioned there are no plans to incorprate this at the moment.

It feels like I've just taken delivery of that new ferrari but the keys are missing...

Great work by the way, this is going to make a fantastic trio of apps that will hopefully put Adobe's nose out of joint as people realise there is a better alternative...
