Hi there,

 

I am trying to create a portfolio booklet for myself in InDesign, but having some initial troupble setting up the document.

 

Basically, I would like to have a version which I can send people as a PDF which will be single A4/Letter sized pages on below the other, and a version which will have two pages next to each other that I will send to print.

 

I have set up my document to use a 3mm bleed for printing, but when I export, the pages do not come out properly and have elemtns overlapping each other etc.

 

So I have decided to create a version that just has one page after the other.

 

I have created the first pages/first page which is fine, but all the next pages seem to be going next to each other like this:

Is there a way I can break the second of the blue pages so it goes under the first one? So basically each page is on it's own like the first one.

 

Any help would be appriciated! 

Thanks

The printer will also need single pages in order to impose your book into printer spreads. Set the document up as Facing Pages with your cover on page 1, the viewing arrangement of the pages in Acrobat depends on the view settings:

 

View>Page Display>Single page scrolling
