Change spread in indesign

Dec 13, 2010 8:36 AM

I wonder if it is possible to create a spread that looks like this picture? I am making a calendar and it folds "upwards" made of 2 A4 pages. I have InDesign CS5. I know you can change the spred "view" to look like this, but I would like to change the actual spread too.


Also wonder if anybody knows if you can change the page transition direction in CS5. I don´t seem to be able to do that. It´s greyed out.

Hoping for the best!

    Selct the spread inthe Pages panel, then right click or open the panel menu and choose Rotate Spread View...


    The pages will rotate in the document window, but not in the panel.

    In Design does not have a direct facility to bind on the top edge of a landcape page. Set up and two portrait pages and rotate the view. While you work you will not be aware that you are actually working in portrait pages. The display will look and behave as if you are working in stacked landscape pages.


    As far as I know, no layout program does a top-binding layout option.

    I'm afraid I can't help you with that one.
