Can I change the format and size of a project?

Windows 10

Papyrus Author Free version 10.06a Win64 dated 2020-9-15

So, if I’ve started a project and want to change it to a different format, is that possible?

For example, I start a writing project on the A4 template but then decide I want to self publish and need the file to fit a 5x8 print ready template, can I change it? And where/how would I do that?

I’m liking PA for projects but it’s taking a bit of getting used to.


Hi Sarah and welcome to the Community :smiley:

It’s great to hear you’re liking Papyrus Author.

Yes it is! We have an easy way for you to apply a template to an existing document.

With your document open, go to the File menu then select Generate / Adopt Styles from Other Document:


In the open browser, select the template you want by double clicking it or single click and “Open”. The standard 5x8 template is located in the Templates / Projects / (02) Paperback folder.

This will create a new document with the original content but with the new layout. Simply save the document and you are ready to carry on writing or editing.

Let me know how it goes :grinning:
