That's true, Val.  But since letter size is so close to it, it may be possible to pick margins for letter size paper that are simply tweaked for A4, not changing the layout itself.

For example,  It you normally have 1" left margin and 0.5" right margin for letter size, adjust them to 0.75" left and 0.48" right for A4.   Similarly, if top margin is 0.75" and bottom is 0.5" for letter size, adjust those to 1.1" top and 0.84" bottom for A4.   That will leave the page contents exactly the same.

Ha! Bill - I just did the same thing, and posted my new PDF too - it hasn't shown up yet, but probably will...

Thanks so much (sheepish grin ;-)

sorry for the double-up

I forgot about the issue of A4 paper though - that is a very good point - I am glad you mentioned that -

I finally bought some A4 paper here to test printing on is a shame the US uses a different paper size than most of the rest of the world - it makes life so complicated when publishing -

Val ;-)

The cut-line at the bottom flowed to the next page.   I edited your PDF to reflow the work.  This might not print with the lines at top and bottom on your A4 paper.  I'm in the US so can't test it.    However, it can be printed reduced and you'd still get cards with lines, just slightly smaller than what you designed.

Otherwise, you need to go back into the program you created it in and adjust it to get the cut-lines all on one page.

Hi Valerie,

Thank you. I have changed a few signs, thanks to Stefan's
feedback on some of the signs
(lion/sheep/snake/tiger/goldfish). I have made a new pdf
(see attachment), with flashcards.

Have a nice Thanksgiving!
