Title: Making a 4 page Wedding Program. Scribus' page setup confuses me.
Post by: Rion on February 06, 2019, 08:11:48 pm
This is for a class that teaches InDesign. I am allowed to use Scribus, but some of the instructions I do not know how to translate to this program (yet!)

These are the instructions the professor gave.

"In order to design a single-fold wedding program properly, you will have to create a 2-page document. Because there is a fold in the middle, it divides the page into two panels per page."

he also added

"You will not be submitting a double-sided document, just both Page 1 and Page 2 in one InDesign file."

---

I attempted to do this, but an issue I am facing is that if I edit Page 1 of the document, Page 2 will change as well. I can post pictures of what I have so far if need be.

Thank you for any help guys.

This sounds as if you are editing a Master Page instead of the actual page.
