and because if you have to export as single page PDF's for web viewing you'll be screwed ....

Exactly. Some printers also request individual pages for some reason. We either need multipage support or AT LEAST the ability to independently change the size of facing pages

While QXP can have X number of spreads/pages side by side, one cannot at this time have pages of differing widths in a single layout. That feature is on the horizon, but it is not here yet.

As I remember X <= 7. Or, maybe, the total width of the page spread must not be greater the total width of maximum page width allowed by QXP.

Yes. Which is 224" x 224"...

Sorry, but why is this not a workable solution. It used to be a workable solution before we had that facility in inDesign.

 

It was a feature when I started using Quark 3 back in 1994!

If you take a little moment to think a little different you will find out that it is possible to create a 3 page folder in APub, just not with three pages. Use one page instead and set up your folds with guides.

...and manually add centre crop marks in the bleed.

Multiple page spreads with multiple sizes options in each spread is a requirement nowadays. One can do that just fine in Designer using artboards. I very much like how artboards work in Designer and something along those lines would be great for Publisher.

I would really like to see this feature, too. I work on a lot of titles that are published as PDF and ePubs, offset printed, and then need to be made available in both hardcover and softcover via print on demand.

Having a single page for front covers is the most efficient way to get a consistent export for stores/websites that want the front cover only, and a three-page-spread with the spine as the page makes it easy to create multiple spreads based on an approved cover and quickly adjust the spine and other elements when printing with slightly different spine dimensions and/or full cover wrap.

I agree. I use it in InDesign a lot, 'cause I design a bunch of book covers every day (a half of them with 5 pages, including flaps). Lot easier to work and less prone to errors than working with a ruled page. I have a lot of clients that almost NEVER make symetrical designs 'cause they doesn't adjust the rules to the correct measures (they work with illustrator, poor boys...).

One MUST.
