#10. Saving Document Presets
If you find yourself in the tedious situation of setting up similar documents over and overfor example, if you create new trifold brochures several times a weekyou can save all the settings in the New Document dialog box as document presets. You can then select from your document presets in the New Document dialog box. This not only saves you time when creating new documents, but it ensures consistency among similar documents. Never again will you wonder about the page size for the book jackets you're working on or the bleed area for a magazine.

Using Document Presets
To use a document preset, select it from the Document Preset menu (Figure 10b) at the top of the New Document dialog box.
