Step 3: Setting master page guides
In this exercise, you will create the guides that will divide the page into the menu panels. Unlike the Column and Margin guides which can be set when you create a new document, Master Page Guides are individual guides which can be placed anywhere on a master page. Each PageStream page is based on a master page, so the guides for a master page will be...
Step 14: Printing the document
Now you are ready to print the letter. If you have not already configured your printer setup in PageStream, you should do so now. 1. Choose Print from the File menu. The Print dialog box will appear. Choose Color or Grayscale as desired from the Method pop-up if you have a color printer, or Grayscale if you have a black and white printer. The remaining...
Step 10: Creating a text column frame
The last step to make the letterhead is to create a text frame to hold the body text for letters. You may want to decrease the view magnification so you can see the whole page, so choose Full Page from the document window's View pop-up menu now. 1. Choose Create Text Frames from the Layout menu. The Create Text Frames dialog box will appear. 2. Click...
Step 8: Creating a text block
The next step is to type the address of the company at the top of the letterhead. Creating a text block is the best solution for a small amount of text such as this. You could draw a text frame and then type into it, but it's often easier to just use text blocks for small tasks. 1. Choose the Text tool from the Toolbox. The mouse pointer will change to a...
Step 6: Moving an object
You can now move the logo to align it with the top guide. Ensure that Snap-to-Guides in the Layout menu is selected, and deselect Snap-to-Grid if it is selected. A checkmark will appear beside them when they are selected. 1. If you deselected the logo, select it now. The logo drawing will be selected when size handles (small squares) are shown at its...
Step 4: Saving your work
It's a good idea to save your work regularly to avoid data loss in case of a power failure or other problem. 1. Choose Save command from the File menu. The Save file selector will appear. Choose a folder in which to save the document. Enter Lesson1 as the name. 2. Click Save.
Step 2: Setting page guides
Your new page already has non-printing margin guides to help you later place a text frame for the body of the letter, but you should create page guides now to help place other objects on the page. 1. Choose Set Page Guides command from the Layout menu. The Set Page Guides dialog box will appear. It has rulers representing the vertical and horizontal...

The Layout Grid
One of the most important parts of designing a document is deciding on a layout grid. While you can place objects anywhere on a page, a layout grid will help you create a professional design. The layout grid is the framework of your document upon which you place objects. A grid will help you ensure that your pages are uniformly designed. The layout grid is...
Understanding styles: A style is a named collection of attributes that you can apply to a block of text without having to select each attribute manually. Styles are used to ensure uniformity and to save time when formatting text. While they can be used in any type of document, their use is critical in long documents.
