[1.8.5.703] - Converting Single master to Facing

Recommended Posts

Perhaps it's just me being an idiot, but I'm having a hard time converting a Single-master to a Facing master page.

Mostly when it comes to setting margins, but the whole master behaves oddly when it was initially created as Single and later converted to Facing.

If I initially create the master as Facing I see no issues. But if I create it as Single I find I'm better off deleting it and starting all over if Facing was what I needed.

 

Anyone else seeing this? If I recall correctly, I've noticed this in earlier versions, as well.

To recreate:

  1. Create a new master as Single.
  2. Go back and edit and change to Facing. Try to set margins, page size, etc.

Thanks, Gabe.

It seems to be working well at your end. I was tearing my hair out yesterday, so I'll start afresh today and perhaps make a screen recording if I still have issues.

To me it seems to hang onto its single origin after the change ... or?

What do you mean by this? The Single to Facing seems fine again

At my end, the new facing spread is a single double width page. The margins seem to apply to this wide page, rather than to two facing pages.
