Ever wonder how to set a 2 page spread in InDesign?  Me too!  Home of InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator, Adobe Creative Cloud is one of the best creative suits available anywhere and on any platform.  I use these tools daily for design, creatives, and even video editing at times.  One of my favorite tools is InDesign.  InDesign is a great tool for creating versatile documents for both digital and offline (print) consumption.

InDesign has many great features when it comes to creating an ideal design environment.  Pages are easy to move and navigate, especially in larger documents.  However, there is one way InDesign arranges pages that I tend to disagree with.  If you happen to have a 2-page spread, InDesign places the first page on the right, and the second page on the left of the workspace – in a staggard fashion.  This is fine except for when you are trying to lineup items across the two pages.

Here are a few easy steps to make a 2-page spread appear side-by-side in InDesign:

Step 1: Right-click on the first page of the spread.
