Object position and page size

How do I change the dimensions of a webpage?

The page size can be changed by going to "File" > "Page Options" and opening the "Page Size" tab.

You can also change the dimensions of your website by placing the mouse cursor over the lower right-hand corner of the page and dragging the edges.

How do I  position objects on a webpage?

  • Generally, you can position objects on a page by dragging and dropping them. To position objects more precisely, you can press Ctrl+L to turn on the ruler feature and use the guidelines to help you place the object exactly where you want it to go. You can also use the object locking features in the "Window" menu (in particular "Snap to objects").
  • To specify an exact numerical position for an object, use the  "Position" input field in the selection tool info bar.
  • It is also possible to have objects automatically positioned on the page. With this feature, any changes made to the size of the page automatically results in a relative repositioning of the objects contained in it. This feature can be used, for example, to make sure your footer is always the right distance from the bottom edge of the page, no matter how many times you change the page size. To activate this feature for an object, right-click the object and select "Auto-Fit to Page". The dialog window that opens contains many different options for defining how the selected objects should behave when you change the size of the page.

Is it possible to prevent the page size from changing accidentally?

You can lock the page size by going to "File" > "Page Options" and opening the "Page Size" tab.  This feature is applied to all pages in your document.
