Spread cannot have more than 10 pages - what does this mean?

Hello there, often when synchronising (book) files or even (right now) when writing text on a page which does not affect the rest of the document in terms of space, a window pops up stating "Spread cannot have more than 10 pages". Why? How do I solve this? Also, I noticed that when adding a page to a file (which I just did because of this message, after which the file synched at last), the new page/s go to the right of the last spread in the pages panel. Why? Boo hoo! I would much appreciate any help.

This bug has been there at least 10 years and I have seen it pop up easily 100 times.. . Like so many other parts of Adobe they simply don't fix bugs, they just move on to creating more. Even worse, even though you turn off the shuffle option, ID will reinstate it on its own whim. A great program, but we have to live with Adobe's disinterest in getting things right.

I'm not sure this (the OP's issue) is a bug. If you move pages around in the Pages pane and do so in a way that creates multi-page spreads, you'll eventually run into this limit.

 

That is, it seems to be caused more by inexpert/inept movement of the pages in Pages than by any glitch in ID—with the drags forming spreads, not rearranging the pages in spreads.

 

If it's occurring when no multi-page spreads are being created, that's different... but it's not how I read the OP's question.

Hi @drasahershoff , As James notes, it’s not a bug but a built-in limit on the number of pages that can be included in a spread:
