Creation guidelines

The editor will create an InDesign file using at least InDesign CS5. This file will include a landscape and a portrait version of each page for the iPad application.

For iPad the InDesign file must:

  • Include only 1 page per spread (no facing pages).
  • Include a portrait and a landscape version of the page for each font size.
  • Page dimensions and margins will be given in the InDesign page specification document for your product if they differ from the default which are as follows:
    • Landscape: 1024px x 768px
    • Portrait: 768px x 1024px
    • Margin/Guide (for both orientations): top = 64px. This margin represents the area that will covered when the nav bar is showing. Images and non-vital content should not be bled into this margin.
Note: Where clients have customized the App Studio client app the dimensions may differ from the standard sizes so please check with your Account Manager where required.

For iPhone 5 the InDesign file must:

  • Include only 1 page per spread (no facing pages).
