I've been given the task of learning In-Design and am excited about it. But, I've hit a snag almost immediately.

My first project needs to be 11" wide X 17" high. I know I need to use a custom size, but have no idea how to convert 11x17 to the code that In-Design wants to use. (I.e., 8.5"x11 = 51p0 x 66p0)

Is there a formula or chart that I can use to convert inches or pixels to this code?

THANKS!

Trixy, If you go into Edit>Preferences>Units and Increments, you can change the measurements to show in inches.

Thank you so much! I figured it had to be something simple, but the "Dummies" book I'm looking at doesn't say.
