I want to build a two-page spread document, but with just the two pages. It seems the only way to build spreads is to set up document as "Facing Pages" which forces you to have single cover page proceeding the spread. I just want the spread.
"Why?" you ask? I'm building a magazine and setting it up as a book document and creating separate documents for each chapter or article. Each article is just a spread, starting on a left hand page.
Go to the pages panel in your facing pages document. Right-click page 1 and choose "Numbering and Section Options" then change the page number to 2 (or any even number).
