I am generating a PDF using Print Book.
Pagination is set to...
1st Page Side: Right
The first page should be the cover, so when it's flipped, the next page should be on the left.
In the PDF, the first page is on the left, which throws off the formatting of the subsequent pages.
Did you set the pagination properties at the book level or the file level? They should always be set at the book level.
I have tried setting it at both, but I may be doing it incorrectly.
This is what I see with the book file and all of the chapter files selected in the file panel.
If you could specify how to make sure that I am setting pagination at the Book level, I would appreciated it.
In the book panel, select the first file in the book, and right-click to get the context menu. You can select the Pagination option from there.
Also, follow Winfried's suggestion to ensure that Acrobat properly displays the cover page first. [Unfortunately, you have no control over how other users have configured their Acrobat versions, so their display may differ from yours.]
If in FM everything is set up right, please note that there is also a ln Acrobat setting that controls how the first page ("Cover page") is displayed.
AFAIK it's an application wide (end user) setting in Acrobat, so there is no control from the authoring side.

In Acrobat there is this option:
View > Page Display > Show Cover Page In Two Page View
When it is selected, the first page will be a single right page in Two Page view.
If you deselect it, the first page will be a left page in Two Page view.
