Your document setup is facing pages - because of the way that print works, page 1 will always be on its own because it is an odd-numbered page. Even-numbered pages will always be on the left.
If you want to see your four-page document as spreads while you're working on it, then you can either change page 1 to page 2 in the pages palette (numbering and section options), or you can change your document setup by unchecking facing pages and making the document width twice your trim size - then you can design two pages side-by-side on each page.
Ultimately though - it depends upon how your document is going to be printed, so more information on that will help us steer you in the right direction.
Okay I'll elaborate. Im making a zine and have 4 pages in indesign, each split to 2 pages (all together 8 individual pages).
The 2nd and 3rd pages (making 4 of the zines pages) are stuck on 1 spread, so that when I save it as a pdf and print it, pages 2 and 3 are printed onto a single piece of paper, unlike pages 1 and 4 which come out to 1 piece each (making 2 of the zines pages per piece, which of course I then fold and staple together). I tried moving page 1 and 2 but it didn't affect the amount of spread, and m not sure where to change the document setup, I remember seeing it but ive looked through so many features now trying to do so many different things I cant recall.
oh, and whenever I save to a Jpeg it recognizes all four pages as separate, but ive put off that option because the whole thing becomes pixalated
First, if you are getting spreads in your PDF you need to uncheck the Spreads box in the export dialog (or maybe you are using an old version where that isn't an option, what version are you using?).
Second, if you want to break apart the spread, select it in the pages panel, then right-click and uncheck Allow selected spread to shuffle. Now you can deselect the spread, then select either page and drag it away from it's mate until you see a vertical black line. If you don't want spreads, it might be easier in future to make your document without facing pages.
Got it. Thanks a lot guys!
OK - if you're printing and folding it yourself, then check this link for setting up the page in the right order. You will need to uncheck facing pages in the document setup dialog (File>Document Setup). You should end up with four indesign pages containing two booklet pages each.
Alternatively, leave facing pages checked and set your document up as eight single pages (ie not as spreads) and then use File>Print Booklet to do the imposition and create a PDF for you.
