A3 indesign file, wanting to export to A4 PDF how?

I’m sure this can be done, just cant figure out how. I’m needing to export my portfolio as a pdf but my indesign document is a3, i see no option to chose the size.

Any help?



A workaround is to take your A3 indesign document and place it inside an A4 document.

  1. Open a new document and set it’s size to A4
  2. Draw a Rectangle or Rectangle Frame over your whole artboard (consider allowing for bleed if you need it)
  3. CMD/Ctrl + D and select your A3 InDesign file and place it into the Rectangle
  4. Fit the placed A3 file into rectangle, making sure not to distort it
  5. Export your PDF as you would normally

Alternatively, you can export the A3 document as an A3 PDF and insert this at stage 3.

In(Design)ception 😉
