What do you mean by double spreads? Does your document have facing pages?
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.
Left hand single page article folder contains:
Right hand single page article
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
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
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.
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.
