Actually the palette change just merged the two
palettes. But this can be useful too.
The change on the fly of the page size didn't work.

Which begs the question: What is the best way to
transfer the text of one document to another
document of different dimensions? I can always
save the raw text from a pdf using e.g., Acrobat 
Reader. But that way one loses all the text

Any suggestions?
