I have a new document with a single page (front cover) followed by two page spreads (facing) and end with a single page (back cover). How do I create a front and back cover with a perfect bound spine and get rid of the single pages? Similar to creating an inside spread except its for the cover. Missing feature or is it normally like this?
I know the width of the spine. So my work around is to double the single page width and add the width of the spine in the Spread Setup. Is this the right way to do it for printing?
UPDATED Sept 17, 2018:
My understanding now is to create two files. One for the cover and one for inside spreads.
The cover will consist of a singular page but custom formatted to include spine width. The right side of the page will be the front cover and the left side of the page will be the back cover.
As for the inside spreads, the first single page is considered as page 1 on the right side when it is opened. For a magazine the inside of the front cover and the right side is sometime consider as a spread or page 1 and 2.
Printninja consider the first page is the right side when you open the cover but that's for book printing.
