Creating a Multipage Spread

InDesign can create spreads that span more than two adjoining pages, which are sometimes referred to as gatefolds because they open similar to a gate. It’s important to note that stand-alone gatefold documents, such as direct mail pieces with multiple folds, require a separate size for each fold so that inner pages fit inside the outer pages. InDesign requires all document pages to be the same size, so if you need these kinds of documents you should probably create them as one-page-per side and place fold marks where appropriate.

First, determine which spread is to be expanded beyond two pages, and then select that page (for single-sided documents) or spread (for facing pages documents) and choose Keep Spread Together from the palette menu in the Pages palette. The spread will then have brackets surrounding the page numbers (see Figure 15-3). You can then drag additional pages into the spread by dragging a master page icon next to the spread or dragging another page icon next to the spread.
