Hi,

It's the first time I'm using Indesign so please forgive me if it's a very stupid question.

I have a catalog to create of 22 pages in one language, than I need to rotate everything upside down because I t will start with another language. So when you arrive at 23rd page you have to close it, rotate, and start reading in another language. I used to simply rotate pages of 180° on the menu of the visualization, but very soon I've discovered that it only affects how I visualize pages on the screen and not when I print them, cause they are printed on the normal side as the 22 previous ones. How can I set this without creating the other 22 pages upside down manually?

Why not build it in a second document?

When I need to do this I create the second language in a separate document, place the InDesign pages from the second document into the first one and then rotate the page images.

Don't forget that if both languages read in the same direction your second language pages have to start at the back and end in the center.
