Is it possible to preview half a spread?

Just wondering...

It would be really helpful sometimes to be able to view the individual pages of a spread rather than the entire spread.

You might want to try the script at http://kasyan.ho.ua/indesign/all/split_spreads.html

Hi @turner111 , Not sure if this is what you want, but the layout’s window bounds are scriptable. This collapses the window to the active page (the page selected in the Pages panel):

 

 

var doc = app.activeDocument;
var r = doc.documentPreferences.pageWidth/doc.documentPreferences.pageHeight; //aspect ratio
var idcb = 90; //top pad
var idtb = 40; //left pad
var bpad = 110; //bottom pad
var sh = $.screens[0].bottom; 
var lwh = sh-(idcb+bpad); 
var lww = Math.round (lwh*r); 
app.activeWindow.bounds = [bpad, idtb, sh, lww]
app.menuActions.itemByID(118788).invoke();

 

 

Before and after:

Hi Rob -

Not exactly... I'm trying to view half the spread as if it's an individual page, like the document isn't set up as facing pages.
