The order of my double pages is not 2-3 and 4-5 as usual, but 3-2 and 5-4 (see screenshot). The title page is also no longer a right-hand page as usual, but a left-hand page. When I create a new, empty document it is like this again, so it must actually be my InDesign preferences, but I can't find the problem. Who can help me?
Do you by chance have the Middle Eastern version of ID? In which case, look under the Layout Menu and select Reverse Pages
Thank you, but I don't have the ME Version. To be sure I deinstalled and installed InDesign (german version) new and under “Layout“ I unfortunately dont have the option to select reserve Page.
Did you create this file yourself, from scratch, using your german version?
Yes, and I seem to remember that at the beginning, when I created this document, there was an option for "page binding", which I have never seen before (and which I can't see again!) I'm afraid that's the problem? It may be that this is the first document I created with InDesign 2021. But even if I now create a new, empty document in InDesign 2020, I have the same problem.
If you got a page binding otion, it means that you have a ME version.

You mean that you still get the first page as a left page and so on? That's very weird if it is not a ME version.
Yeah, that's totally weird! If I had the ME version, it wouldn't be in German either - it's only available in English as I understand it.... I would also have to find an option where I could change the page binding again, right?
Can I still delete preferences somewhere when I uninstall InDesign - so far I've only done it via the Uninstall alias...
Yes, quit InDesign and restart it while holding down simulatneously Shift, Ctrl, Alt [Windows], Shift, Ctrl, Alt and Cmd [Mac] until you get a message asking for confirmation..
Oh yes!!! Thank you so much – now I can create a „normal“ new document again!
Du kannst das auch nachträglich in der InDesign-Datei ändern.
app.documents.documentPreferences.pageBinding = PageBindingOptions.LEFT_TO_RIGHT;
Wie man ExtendScript-Code als *.jsx-Datei speichert, diese Skriptdatei so installiert, dass sie im Skripte-Bedienfeld in InDesign auftaucht und wie man das Skript von dort aus starten kann, kannst Du hier nachlesen:

danke ich habe jetzt schon alle Seiten in ein neues Dokument rüberkopiert, aber das hilft hier ja vielleicht nochmal jemandem mit demselben Problem...
