So what you are saying is you have a bunch of imposed page spreads as single pages instyead of a proper facing pages file?
If that's the case you either copy/paste or place/crop the content or the pages themselves into a new file in the correct order (and next time do the job as facing pages in readers' spreads).
Yes, since documents get printed in pages of 4 that is how a print ready indesign file needs to be formatted. So I just basicall copy and past each page into a new document?

As far as imposing, were you the printer, or awere you asked top supply an imposed file? Did you do the initial layout in printers' spreads? Life is much simpler if you use facing pages and layout in consecutive order as your reeadersare going to see the document, then do the imposition at the end (using Print Booklet, a script, or a real imposition plugin.)
No I wasn't the printer. I was asked to supply the file in that format (first to last two page). Sorry I am very new to indesign, do you have any simple instructions how to select, copy and past each page. Every time I try it just selects a certain layer and not the entire page.
Did you really do the layout in that order when you did your design? What a headache and waste of effort.
First, make sure nothing is locked, then you have a couple of choices. You can either use the selection tool to "marquee" select the objects on one side, copy, then "paste in place" on the appropriate page in the new file (and enabling Paste Remembers Layers in the layers panel would be a good idea, first), or you can select all, copy and paste in place an entire spread into an entire spread in the new file, then drag the pages into the correct order in the panel.
How many pages are we talking about here?
The other method is to use File > Place and place each page from the original file twice, once for the left and once for the right (you can actually just copy it after placing each page), then crop and position, but you won't be able to do any editing in the new layout.
That's how they said they needed the file. The document is 26 pages but really is 52 because there are 2 per page. I'm going to try and execute what you instructed me to do in regards to the copy and paste. I'll probably need more help due to the fact that I suck at indesign! Thanks for your help.
You need to find a new printer.
