  • can someone tell me why the page gets smaller when I change the size and go bigger

    Hi, I was working on my test page, and I noticed that when I changes it from an 8x8 to 12x12 the page actually gets smaller. I used one of the pages from the forum I dont know if that makes a difference or not, but what am I doing wrong?

    It gets smaller...where? On the screen while you're working on it?

    That could be the default zoom setting of "Fit All" which automatically sets your zoom level to fit the whole page onto the work space at once. In order to avoid some graphical glitches in windows it needs to round off the zoom level to the nearest "acceptable" zoom level...so the amount of zoom may not be exactly the same after you change the page size.

    The zoom level doesn't affect anything in the final output, so it shouldn't really matter.

      Hi Krissy1028...

      Go to View, Zoom Level, 100%. That will allow you to see the page in actual size.

        Yeah, after discussing it in private it's just the zoom level changing. The actual page size is way bigger than what can fit on your screen, so the program has to "zoom out" to make it fit on screen.

        When you change the page size larger, the program zooms out further to keep it all in view, and because it only has so many zoom levels to choose from, it picks the best one it has and sometimes they aren't exactly the same. No biggie - it all looks the same when it's printed, or published to JPEG images, or whatever.
