CS4: How to set up landscape orientation doc with dual page setup vertical not horizontal

Jan 8, 2012 2:18 AM

I'm an InDesign newbie and am trying to set up document presets for a landscape-oriented document that will have binding at the top and bottom edges of the page, not the default left and right edges.  So when I open up my spread of pages 2 and 3 I want to see page 2 ABOVE page 3 not to the left of it.


I can't see any way to do this. Am I missing something or is this just not possible in InDesign CS4 (v6.0.6)?

    The closest you can come out of the box is to set up a facing pages document using portrait orientation, then select the spreads in the Pages panel and Rotate Spread View 90 degrees Counter-Clockwise before you begin the layout.


    This will allow you to work "as if" your pages were landscape and bound on the long edges, but things like x and y coordinates will be swapped bcause you are really still working on rotated pages.
