Hi Art,
That is a good idea.

The final will be delivered in PDF format.

The next question is - How do I generate a PDF that reads the different page
sizes? When I print the file to a PS file, I have to specify the page size (
8.5 x 11). When I distill and look at the final PDF, it has cropped the
oversized page to 11 x 8.5. (Interesting that it reads that this page is
landscape and not portrait, but doesn't account for the larger page size.)

I also tested by just doing a Save As from the BOOK file, but the final PDF
has the same output.

Any ideas on how to preserve the different page sizes?

thanks,
Kara
