I have a 2 page document and I need them to be next to each other. It's for a large banner that will be split down the middle. I can do it on page 2 and page 3 but not on page 1 and 2. page 1 always shows up alone at the top.
First of all, you have 'facing pages' set to checked in your page setup. That creates a singular page 1, then pairs of 2 pages -- the default book layout mode.
Next, you have to check (or un-check -- never can remember what's the default) "Allow pages to shuffle" in the Pages panel menu. With that done, you can drag individual pages in the Page panel side-to-side. While dragging a page icon, you will see the cursor change when you come near the edge of the one you want it to stick to.
its better to make sure you have facing pages ticked, number of pages 2, start page number 2.
This worked for me!
Very helpful thanks!
You can also setup spreads with non facing page documents by unchecking Allow Document Pages to Shuffle and dragging the page icons together. In that case you can use the Pages tool to position the page anywhere on the paste board, which can be useful for visualizing projects like trade show banners where you might want space between the panels
FWIW: The feature Rob's showing is available for InDesign CS5 and above.
( This thread started in 2009. InDesign CS5 wasn't out at that time. )
Thanks Uwe, wasn't paying attention to the date.
