I have greeting card stock that is 6" wide, 8" long with a fold across, resulting in a 4" by 6" greeting card. In Labels and Addresses, there are several greeting card options, but all show either A4 or letter sized paper. When I click "Custom" I can't seem to find anyplace to enter custom info. Can you help?

I bought L&A for labels, but also because it offered a greeting card option -- now I hope I can do the cards here instead of having to buy yet another program, like Swift Publisher. Thank you in advance.

Hi shsh
#1. Choose one of predefined layouts from the Assistant window (say: US Standard PostCard (6 x 4 inches).
#2. From the new created document, change the layout:
- File>Change Layout…
or
- from the Document tab of the Inspector pane, click on the "Change Layout…" button
#3. from there, a new sheet is opened with the "Custom" tab selected
#4. click on the "Create New…" button
#5. set your custom sizes, rows, columns …

#6. et voilà! ;^)
Hope this helps.
