Can frames exceed page margin - and how?

Post by JGN »

Hello everyone.
Is there a way I can
1) Change page margin on a single page without affecting other pages, or
2) Make a graphics frame exceed the page margin ??
I have tried to create a new master page with changed page margins (Cmd-shift-L), but it affects the whole project!
I would very much like the graphics frame on the screenshot to fill the entire page.
Hope someone can help 🙂

Welcome to the forum, JGN.

Frames cannot go beyond the page margin. If you really need to do this, you can set the page margins in Layout Options to zero, and then you can position all of the frames in your master pages, including the default music and text frames, inset from the edge of the page.

In these cases, I’ve found it easiest to create full-bleed pages separately, and combine them in something like Acrobat.
