About Page Layouts

A page layout is an element that you can use in order to determine page specifications (e.g., size, margins) and to apply certain content (e.g., headers, footers, page numbers) to many (or all) topics in print-based output. It allows for easy configuration through the use of content frames, bleeds, crop marks, registration marks, margins, padding, alignment features, and more.

You might use page layouts in new documents that you create, or you might see page layouts in templates or topics sent to you by Flare authors. See Creating New Documents.
