Step 2: Starting a new document
This document will be double-sided because guides are associated with master page sides in PageStream. The front and back of the menu must have different guide positions to accommodate the folds.

Lesson 2: Designing a Menu
In this lesson, you will create a takeout menu. The format is a landscape letter page folded in thirds.

Step 11: Saving as a template
Because this letterhead will be used as a template for future letters, you should save it as a template. A template is a special kind of PageStream document: when it is opened the window will be untitled. This will prevent you or others from accidentally saving a letter over the letterhead file. 1. Choose Save As Template from the File menu. The Save file...
Step 7: Scaling an object
The logo needs to be scaled to a smaller size to fit on the letterhead. As with moving an object, scaling can be done quickly by showing the object's bounding box, or more slowly by showing the actual object outlines.
