  • Starting With a Spread

    May 13th, 2006 by Russell Viers

    According to the Laws of Printing, odd number pages have to be on the right side…period…no questions.
    But what if you’re doing a simple two-page spread or four-page brochure and you want the two spreads as spreads in the Pages palette?
    Many people just ignore page one and build on pages 2-5…but who really wants to do that?
    Well, there’s a better way. In the fly-out menu of the Pages Palette, you’ll see the option Allow Pages to Shuffle, which, by default, is checked…uncheck it.
    Now you can move page one to the left, drop page two on the right side and add other spreads below.
