    Repetitive pages




      How do I edit double spreads appearing in horizontal view? The vertical view from ipad displays single pages, but when viewed from the horizontal view, double spreads appeared.

      Please help Adobe experts...

          What do you mean by double spreads? Does your document have facing pages?

            Hi Bob,


            My indesign document is just a single page. Bob, you are the closest to

            helping me resolve my issues. I really hope you have time to check this

            detailed post to get me past this bumps...


            I created a 6 paged folio as a test file with horizontal and vertical



            In effect I had 6 folders labeled as articles containing two articles each

            for the horizontal and vertical layout using _h and _v suffix.

            and check it from an ipad. I was able to upload it through the Folio





            When viewed from the iPad Vertical Orientation:


            Left hand page on print   :   shows a single page which ill refer to "PAGE

            A" for illustration purpose


            Right hand page on print :   shows another single page which ill refer to

            "PAGE B" for illustration purpose




            As a horizontal article, I placed the image of PAGE A and PAGE B together

            on one landscape orientation ipad document to simulate a print spread. I

            did this for both Left and right hand document, saving the same horizontal

            article on each folder but with different article file name.




            to illustrate:


            Left hand single page article folder contains:


            PAGE A_v


            PAGE A+B_h




            Right hand single page article


            PAGE B_v


            PAGE A+B2_h




            Now when I view it from the ipad, Vertical view displays correctly showing

            each vertical page separately. But when viewed horizontally, obviously two

            spreads for each left and right hand page appeared.



            I was able to resolve this before through Folio Editor/Organizer by

            deleting recurring spreads in horizontal view.



            I just discovered that I cant view anything from the Folio Editor/Organizer

            no matter what Folio I upload. I discovered this by uploading a test

            article with just a vector shape on it. It still did not show me any content

              Hi there, I'm wondering if you ended up finding a solutions for this?


              I am having the same problem but with both horizontal and vertical pages - I have double pages of both and can't seem to work out why. I have tried loading the pages differently and when I do this all pages load corectly BUT my navigation on the horizontal pages doesn't work throughout the whole document.


              I would be greatful for any suggestions...

                I learned this the hard way...I hope this is what you were looking for:


                This is how your file structure should look like for a 5 page document example: (i'll start on the article level)

                page 1 right page : cover

                page 2 left page

                page 3 right page

                page 4 left page

                page 5 right page


                Article 1:


                1-page indd document : cover in vertical



                1-page indd document : vertical cover laid out on right side of the page, proportionally sized according to height of horizontal page 


                Article 2:


                2-page indd document  : page 2 left page (facing page turned off)

                                                  :  page 3 right page



                1-page indd document : both page 2 left page and page 3 right page side by side (spreads)


                Article 3: (the same as article 2)


                2-page indd document  : page 4 left page

                                                  :  page 5 right page



                1-page indd document : both page 4 left page and page 5 right page




                • The trick is, you have to activate "horizontal swipe" button from the Folio Organizer.

                • Make sure to leave allowance for the control bars away from the document edge when you lay out your pages proprtionally.

                • I used PDF placed on an indd document with PDF as the default format. PDF thumbnails won't be viewable from the Folio Organizer because of this.

                  Hi Mikke,


                  Thanks for your help with this, much appreciated.


                  It turns out I was naming my Articles incorrectly - I was putting _h and _v after each article (as well as my Indesign files) so it was loading each horizontal and vertical page twice. Once I changed my Article names it worked beautifully.
