Liquid Page Rules
The proliferation of tablets has provided a new medium for designers to showcase their skills, but the different screen resolutions and orientations involved can make for a lot of extra layout work. InDesign CS6's new Liquid Page Rules help to alleviate the problem by allowing you to specify how content behaves when the page size or orientation changes.
In the example above, Object-based Liquid Page Rules have been applied to the different elements on the portrait-format (768-by-1,024-pixel) page at the top, so that when it's resized to landscape (1,024x768) mode the layout still works: the background image has been set to Auto-Fit its frame, resize horizontally and vertically, and is 'pinned' to all four edges of the page; the big letter 'A' resizes width-ways and is pinned to the top and right; the other elements ('Designer Profile', 'Alice Ritter' and the red logo) are pinned to their respective edges but don't resize.
