    Book file doesn't merge starts and ends of chapters, failing to create spreads upon export

    arpramstad

      I have 15 chapters of a book created in their own docs in ID CS4. They have same para and ch.styles and master frames. The docs are set up to have facing pages with the exception of the start page, if it's right facing, or end page, if it's left facing. It was my–apparently, incorrect–assumption that assembling the chapter files in a book document (syncing the styles just to be sure) and then exporting to PDF would result in a PDF file with end and start pages  automatically assembled next to each other, creating completed spreads. Instead, I get a pair of stacked single pages whereever the chapters change.

       

      Clearly, I am missing something... But what?

       

      Thanks for any and all advice.
