Hi Maria!
Regarding A5 and A4 size paper, that can be accomplished right now.

But it is true that DocumentMaker, at this time, only has Landscape  
layouts...we did that because that was the request at the time that we  
developed it. Some people suggested to me that reading shorter columns  
in Landscape was better than reading longer columns in Portrait mode,  
so that is why it got designed that way...

But I realize now that we need layouts in both Landscape and Portrait  
modes, and later I hope to build more layouts in the program...

So there is only Landscape right now...

Regarding printing to A4 or A5...There are two issues with that

1. Your printer settings on your computer can reduce or enlarge  
the printing for the size paper you are using...and on your computer  
you can stipulate that you want it to print in A4 or A5...that is in  
your Printer driver...

2. Inside DocumentMaker, under the Scripts menu, you can choose A4.  
That should help a little, but it does not give you sometimes  
just reducing or enlarging inside your Printer driver will take care  
of fitting the document on the page...

See attached diagram showing how to change to A4 in DocumentMaker...
