im trying to make a printed publication. I want the inside to have a bigger margin to leave space for book binding. Ive set my document, and the margin settings. however. as you can see, my document came out where the inside margin on the left page is smaller (because the side with a bigger margin is on right right side of the right page.) whereas the inside margin on the right page is bigger, just like how I wanted it to be. anyone knows if this should be fixed if I'm making a publication? or lmk solutions to this please.

 

(also I want to organise the pages to the order of the printed document, anyone knows any programme that can do this?)

All just an example of how InDesign is not like Word and other tools that do almost everying on autopilot. There is a lot that goes into a document before you can type the first word or place an element, and neither the steps nor their "range" is completely intuitive.

 

Those big starting steps are a good place to invest some time in basic tutorials, so you get a good grounding in document layout and formatting. The time will pay back in multiples that would otherwise be lost to trying to figure things out one step at a time and backing out of mistake after mistake.

 

That said, I'm not quite sure what your second request means. You generally want to keep the number of Parent pages small, and while they can be re-ordered in their list, it's pretty much irrelevant to the actual document layout.
