In a left-to-right reading InDesign document, printing tradition determines that odd-numbered pages are on the right, and even-numbered are on the left. So to create left-right, left-right spreads you need to start your numbering on page 2.

 

From the Pages panel menu choose Numbering and Section Options, and set the start page to be 2.

This will give you what you want.

Tell more about how you're using your layout. What is the purpose of the numbers?

 

InDesign's page numbering feature is designed for printing which doesn't allow that.

Creating facing pages with numbers is really only used for printing which has to follow certain rules.

 

If you're creating a presentation, or a web page or an EPUB or Kindle publication (which aren't fixed size), you wouldn't be viewing the pages with numbering side-by-side.

Hi @cbishop01 , With the Pages panel flyout menu’s Allow Document Pages to Shuffle unchecked, delete page 1

If your document is going to be printed and bound, and the 1-2 spread is folded at the spine, where’s the page that would have to print on the back of page 1?
