I have improper gutter settings in my .indb I need to know how to MODIFY the gutter for both left and right pages at once. If I do this in the margin settings it moves the gutter to the right which is correct on the the right spread but the wrong on the left.
what are your desired gutter values and gutter positions for facing pages?
0.25 all around except inside 0.625
same for the right

Some people use "gutter" to describe the space between 2 columns, other use it to describe the space between two pages. InDesign uses the first definition in margins and columns so I'm going to guess that is what your question is about.
Assuming I guessed correctly, are you trying to define the gutter width or gutter position?
When Uwe asked the same question, you responded with column values. A screen shot would be very helpful to help us figure out what you are asking.
So sorry I see now, i need to adjust the INSIDE margin on both facing pages, is there a way to do this in an existing document?
I'm sure there is. ??
You can adjust Margins and Columns on your Master Pages (in the Layout Menu).
Yes, Matthew, increasing the inside margin will increase the left margin on a right page and the right margin on the left page, at the same time. Be sure to enable the Adjust Layout checkbox so that the existing text frames will shift with the update.
Hi ma'am and sir! I'm confused why my margins and columns window does look the same with the screenshot above, my goal is to create a gutter of 0.2 but increasing number of column is not an option since my file does have a facing pages for printing a book soon.
I tried also to adjust my master page "inside" margin but it seems that all page margins are adjusted on the left only.
Tried also to do it on the adjust layout button but its still the same result.
correction on previous reply, my margins and columns window does NOT look the same with the screenshot above.
some screenshots of all pages selected in the Pages panel of a particular spread together with the Margins and Columns dialog will help. Also one of your document setup regarding margins and if you are working in a facing-pages document or not. Also state the exact version of your InDesign and the operating system.
