So I'm making a book and I want the page number to start on page 4(so that it could be page 1) so I set that page to be the start of a new section but it was on the left side and then now after I set it up it has shifted to where page 5 used to be on the right and has shifted all the pages out of the structure it was in before. I can't drag the page back to the left either. It seems insistent on staying on the right after I made that the start section. Using InDesign CS5.5
This is what I'm left with:
ID respects convention. Readers expect odd numbered pages on the right, even on the left, so that's what ID does. Best practice would be to add a blank page, but you can disable page shuffling and force the pages to be on the wrong side.
