Chapter 2. Page Layout > Arranging Pages

Arranging Pages

Ordinarily, the pages in your publication are arranged into spreads according to the state of the Facing Pages option in the New Document and Document Setup dialog boxes. If you’ve turned the Facing Pages option on, InDesign arranges the majority of pages into two-page spreads (the first page is a single page spread). If the Facing Pages option is off, InDesign makes each page in the publication into a single page spread.

But you’re not limited to these arrangements of pages and spreads. At any point, in any section of your publication, you can create a spread containing anything from one to ten pages. InDesign 1.0 called these custom arrangements of pages “island” spreads. We don’t know what makes one of these an island, and not a peninsula or an isthmus, but we’ll stick with the old terminology (because we can’t think of anything better, ourselves).
