What order should pages be? (sequential or otherwise) Generally, for the designer, reader spreads (sequential). It is most often in the hands of the print provider to impose a reader spread PDF or document into printer spreads for production. There are some cases (generally for smaller print shops) where you may be asked to create printer spreads. But ...
Right alignment can be legible, but is more of a challenge. In both examples you show, the name (or subhead) needs to stand out more for legibility. You can try adding a paragraph rule to create a black box around the name. In my example below, the subhead is bolder and one point size larger than the original text. Im not sure how you got the bulleted list ...
This could be it. Pull up the Artboard Options dialog box from the flyout menu of the Artboards panel. Under "Global", is the box checked that says "Fade region outside Artboard"? If so, uncheck it and it should go back to gray.
View > Overprint Preview Turn that off if you want to see the tinted pasteboard around artboards. It could also be Hide Artboards as @TimesWasting suggests
I bet "Hide artboards" was accidentally clicked or keyboard shortcutted. Go to View > Show Artboards (... if I'm correct. Otherwise, it will still say "Hide Artboards"). Let me know if this helps.
The challenge with the flush-right positioning for the names is that it visually pulls your eye away from the bulleted list associated with the name and closer to the bulleted list of tasks for the person listed just to the right in the next box. If the lines of bulleted text are really short and you have white space to spare to the right of each bulleted ...
Your suggestion would look nice if the bullet points part would be more compact horizontally, as it shows on your first image or if you had 2 columns. With 3 columns, it will end up taking more room vertically and the sentences with the bullet points will be very short on each line. The other issue with having the names aligned on the right is that you ...
I don't have any guide to suggest you but there's not much difference from printing on Xerox or any other imposition for printing. Maybe this can get you started. The goal is always to use as much of the printing area as possible and to reduce the number of trim necessary. This way you save on paper and also on the time it takes to cut the sheets. ...
Seeing the larger picture, so to speak, I think your suggested right-flush design won't work. The name would be buried over on the side, with the bullet points wrapping around it, rendering it either clutter or invisible. If your goal is to make this document a quick reference, then the reader is going to have to work to find the person's name, and the ...
