Hi Roger,

Could you explain a bit more about the steps needed to create a 3 fold brochure to be printed on A4?
Would I have to calculate the 3, or rather 6, 'page' sizes to print on both sides of A4? Does the 
'3 Fold' option allow for a 3mm shorter right-hand page to allow for folding it inside the others 
(so that it won't bulge)?

Is it not easier to use a 'Double sided' A4 size document and calculate where the guides ought to 
go? Or is a case of "many ways to accomplish the same thing"? :-)
