World Tools Pro from In-Tools.com will allow you to set type right to left, but I'm not sure it unlocks right-to-left pagination. You may need to switch a version of ID that supports right-to-left layout (as the Japanese localization does). If this is an English version, though, I would think you'd want to use a left-to-right layout for an English-speaking audience....
Yes. It allows switch binding direction (as does the non-pro version).
However, if all you need to do is switch the page binding, you can do it with a simple script.
This simple one-line script will switch the page binding in your current document:
app.documents.documentPreferences.pageBinding = app.documents.documentPreferences.pageBinding == PageBindingOptions.LEFT_TO_RIGHT ? PageBindingOptions.RIGHT_TO_LEFT : PageBindingOptions.LEFT_TO_RIGHT;
Thanks for jumping in, Gabe. I'm clearly asleep this morning.
It's okay. I don't think we expect you to know everything...
Switching binding direction via scripting in non-CJK versions is a relatively new feature. IIRC, it was added in CS5.
Yeah but I think I completely blew this one. Looking again I see the problem is that opening a RTL doc seems to set ID to be RTL and he the OP was looking for a way to get it switched back, so my suggestiont o work LTR was sort of out of place, don't you think?
I really need a vacation...
That's for the reply guys. I haven't use scripting before. Will try it out. Thanks again.
