    CS 6 2-Up Landscape Layout Help Wanted

    Jaldhar

      I want to recreate some Sanskrit books in the traditional "pothi" format.  Before the introduction of paper many centuries ago these would have been written on palm leaves so the page has developed to be long in width and relatively short in width.  So what I did is to set my pages to be landscape mode and 11" width by 4.25" height.  That way I can get 2 pages on one side of US letter size paper and as I have a duplex printer, 4 pages per sheet altogether.  Here is an illustration.  The arrow represents the direction of the text.

       

         Side 1                                             Side2

      +--------------------------------------------+     +---------------------------------------------+

      |  4                                    V    |     |  3                                   /\     |

      |                                            |     |                                             |

      +--------------------------------------------+     +---------------------------------------------+

      |  1                                         |     |  2                                   /\     |

      |                                       V    |     |                                             |

      +--------------------------------------------+     +---------------------------------------------+

       

      This seems like it should be easy enough to do but owing no doubt to my extreme newbieness in the use of InDesign I have not figured it out.  Can anyone help please?
