Hi. I have watched three YouTube videos for creating a paperback cover which includes front, spine and back horizontally abutting each other in Pages panel and workspace view. An example of one video is "InDesign How-To: Set Up a Book Cover (Video Tutorial)," on the InDesignSecrets channel. Instructions on all videos indicate to uncheck Allow Document Pages to Shuffle and uncheck Allow Selected Spread to Shuffle.
6x9 document, 3 pages. No matter what I do, whether both are checked, unchecked, or only one option is checked and the other unchecked, I cannot get page 2 to move beside page 1, and I can't move page 3 beside page 2. I can drag page 2 or 3, but they will not drop into place and instead return to their vertical position. I also tried changing to Horizontal option in View Pages, but that made no difference.
I've taken a screenshot of current status. Is there something I'm missing?
No, that was part of the problem, they did not appear as confirmation of being able to drop the page into place. But I did figure it out. I was writing my follow-up post as you were writing your response. Thank you!
