Instead of picking from the list of preset sizes in the New Document dialog, key in your own values – when you select say A4 you’ll see 210 and 297 but you can enter these values yourself too.

10″ envelope – do you mean C4 to fit a piece of A4 paper without folding? If so size is 324 x 229 mm, set orientation (portrait or landscape) depending on your requirements.

If a different size, measure the envelope you have to match and enter corresponding values.

  1. 10 is the standard U.S. size for envelopes. The measurements are 9.5″ x 4.125″. To set up your document in InDesign CS4, first create a new document. Select Custom from the Page Size drop down menu. Enter 9.5 as your width and 4.125 as your height. Change your orientation to Landscape. Click ok.
