Align spreads with different page sizes

Hi all, wondering if anyone can help - I have a document set up for a digital publication in which there are a few spreads which have pages of different heights. I want these to read aligned at their top edge, however with the InDesign default of aligning centrally I can't find a way of how to acheive this. Can anyone provide a solution? Would be much appreciated.

Select the page with the Page Tool, then drag to the desired position 😉

Thanks Frans, however that's not what I'm looking to achieve here - instead of moving the page between spreads, I am looking for the spread to align along the top edge rather than its central axis. See below:

Yes, you drag the page to that position.

You need to use Page Tool - from the "main" toolbox - don't move pages on the Pages Panel.

Apologies, I haven't used that before as a means of handling pages. Thanks both - problem solved.

The Page tool gives you the most precision for moving pages. In addition to dragging pages up and down as @Frans v.d. Geest suggests, you can also change the Y (vertical) position of the page in the Control panel as shown in this example where page 2 is positioned lower than pages 1 and 3.

Hi @Ryan29662700e42p ,

you could select both pages with the Page Tool and use the Align command from the Align panel as well.

When both pages are selected, make sure that the option is enabled, that page contents will be moved with the page.

 

From my German InDesign where this option is enabled in the Control panel ( note, the Properties panel is missing that option ) :

Both pages selected with the Page tool together with the Align panel:

Result:
