Page spread issue

I have been working on a document in spread format, and wanted to add page numbers. I added the page numbers and had to send the document over as single pages for print. I need to do some additional work and want to look at it as a spread again, but cannot reconfigure the page to view it as such. I go to document set up > click facing pages, and I get a message that says " one or more spreads are set to keep their pages together. Do you want to maintain the current number of pages on these spreads." No matter whether I click yes or no nothing happens. I figured I could also just try to export a pdf as a spread just so I could see how it's all laid out, but that didn't work either. When I exported the file as a pdf and selected spreads I still got single pages. None of this happened until I added page numbers. What can I do aside from starting all over?

A document setup as Facing Pages is made up of single pages—there’s no need to uncheck Facing Pages in Document Setup before you Export to PDF or Package for print. When exporting to PDF just make sure you choose Export As Pages in the General tab. See my last post here:
