I have a simple question:
I have a sheet with business cards (made with the correct template, 
etc.) but as I have a different printer I want to adjust the dimensions 
as to fit them perfectly. How is that done?
I can not find a modify button anywhere and page formatting is not the 
correct way (it completely changes all dimensions).
I'm still working with 3.4 (but will only change to 3.5 when it is 
reasonably bug-free.
Thanks in advance,

The Business card & label templates use frames (instead of a table). If
you were lucky you rememeberd to select 'syncronize' when you created it
so that you can easily sync the rest of the cards/label. Anyway, to
modify, I highly recommend that you keep a backup of your original, and
then: 'View|Text boundries'. You'll then be able to see the frame
outlines. Right-click on the frame boarder and select 'Frame|Options'
untick the Protect items 'Position' and 'Size'. You can then modify the
frame as you wish by using the 'Type' tab, or exiting the Frame function
and then move/resize the frame with the mouse. When finished, don't
forget to go back and retick the Protect items 'Position' and 'Size' so
that you lock the frames back down.

However, IMO it's easier just to create a new one, adjust the sizes that
you need, and then copy the data from the first frame over to the new one.
