If you open an InDesign document that contains pages of varying sizes, you might wonder if there was a quick way to tell the exact size of each page.

Indeed there is. But don’t go looking in the Pages panel or the Document Setup dialog box. Instead, just take the Page tool and click on any page you want to see the size of. The dimensions will be shown in the Control panel, along with the name of any matching document preset.
