I prepared a book in Indesign CC 2018 (made of 15 chapters) & I exported it to reflowable EPUB. The book is very simple, without graphics, only text divided into chapters with footnotes. To see a book I opened it 1) in Microsoft Edge - here everything is ok, the flow is correct 2) in Adobe Digital Editions - here the pages are "inverted" - I mean the left page is on the right side and the right page is previewed on the left side. The language in InDesign is set to English. In Sigil everything is ok, the flow is correct.
Why Adobe Digital Editions shows my EPUB wrong? I reinstalled ADE & I previewed the book on different computers, but the problem remains.

I just had this issue and it was resolved when I deleted the "ar-SA" language and replaced it with "en-US".
thanks for this tip! And where did you change the language?
Look in the .opf file and check what languages you have in the <dc:language> tag. I had both en-US and ar-SA, so I deleted <dc:language>ar-SA</dc:language> from here and also searched and deleted it wherever it appeared in the xhtml files.
Thanks a lot for your help - it worked!
You can try change the language in InDesign file. Try this script that change the language setting for all text frames...very usufull
This fix did not work for me. There was only one language tag, and it was "en." I'm using the newest (subscription) version of InDesign on a PC. Can someone help me troubleshoot this?
I too had this problem and it was caused by ar-SA language (Arabic, btw).
I fixed it by doing a find/change (Ctrl+F) and searching in 'Find Format' - 'Advanced Character Formats' and then putting 'Arabic' into the drop-down 'Language' field, and then in the 'Change Format' field - again in 'Advanced Character Formats', changing it to English.
In both cases this was a problem, I'd used an Arabic glyph on one character.
