    How do I maintain spreads after moving pages from one file to another?

    unwork

      I'm consolidating several book chapters into one Indesign file, by way of clicking on the thumbnails on the Pages panel and selecting 'Move Pages...' from the contextual menu.

       

      The problem I'm having is that I can't maintain the page flow between chapters on the destination file, resulting in a broken spread between chapters when exporting to PDF. Here's a screenshot to better illustrate the problem, here seen in between pages 18-19:

      I've tried turning on and off the following options on both the source and destination documents but nothing changes:

       

      - Allow Selected Spread To Shuffle

      - Allow Document Pages To Shuffle

       

      I've also removed all the sections from the destination document (as you can see on the screenshot, page 19 does not have the little black arrow which denotes a new section), with no luck either.

       

      I also tried dragging the thumbnails manually but to no avail; I just can't figure out how to keep the page spreads between chapters together.

       

      Can anyone help me with this?

       

      Thanks in advance
