    Text showing up on wrong side of page


      I just opened a Pagemaker 7 file in InDesign CS4. Everything looks fine except in those cases where text flows from the left hand side of a page to the right hand side of a page. For some reason the text that belongs on the left gets put on the right and vice versa, even though the graphics remain on the correct page.  Any thoughts? Thank you.

          PM files opened in InDesign will be anywhere from near perfect to

          practically unusable.


          I'm not really sure what's up with this particular file but it doesn't

          really surprise me.

            Last time I opened a 136 page PageMaker 7 document in InDesign and the only problems were some overset text. I get what you're saying that it may be iffy, but for my purposes PageMaker is just so much easier to use. Basically in this case, as a work around, I'm deleting the text and pasting it back in. Thank goodness I don't have too many instances of the text flowing in this document. Thanks Bob. I do appreciate your taking the time to respond.
