    How do I setup magazine to view pages consecutively, but print for double sided 11x17?

    RickHarlan

      I have a quarterly newsletter I've begun.  I set it up as (8) 11x17 pages with (2) 8-1/2" x 11" page views per 11x17 page, so that when they print double sided, there are consecutive. The problem is that when I am trying to navigate from page to page, they are not consecutive on the screen. Is there a way to set up the pages at 8-1/2" x 11" consecutively in InDesign, but send to printer for two sided 11x17 and have the pages come out in the right place?

       

      Not sure that I am describing properly. For instance viewing an 11x17 page (Page 1 as far as InDesign is concerned), the right half is Page 1, and the left half is page 16; or (page 2 in InDesign) is page 15 on the left side, and page 2 on the right side.  This all prints perfectly, but navigating it during layout is extremely cumbersome.  Also, printing for general public PDF viewing is impossible.

       

      Thanks, Rick
