    The person I work with for print layout and graphics misunderstood a midnight deadline for an ad--and I think I will be okay if I can pull something together by morning. I don't have (or know) PageMaker so I thought I'd try working in Pages, which I have successfully used the templates from in the past. I am not very experienced with something as specific as a 3 5/8" w X 10" h no bleed request. I have tried margins in the Inspector but can't figure out the easiest way to start with these boundaries. I will be fine if I can get my "frame." Can anyone help? Thanks!:confused:

    Howdy. Are you starting with a word processor layout or a newsletter layout. When you start Pages, there is a galley. On the left choose Newsletter and then use one of the pre-made templates or choose blank. Once that is done you can click on the Text Box (on toolbar) to place a text object on the"blank" canvas. Then to see margins, etc, choose CMD + Shift + L (or View > Show Layout).

    I find it easier to use an already made template then adjust.

    Is that what you are wanting? Or did I misread/misunderstand?
