I think I posted this several years ago but do not find it now.

 

I plan on printing a book using full 8 1/2 X 11 two-sided pages similar to regular book publishers.  Presently all I know to do is set the right and left margins exactly the same then use finger stock as binding because using any other type binding would cause parts of the printing to be difficult to read by being in the binding area.

 

What I would like to do is set the margins so that when viewing facing pages the middle margines is wider than the edge margines.  This used to be doable with AppleWorks by having a menu item "Mirror Pages" instead of "Facing Pages".  Can this be done in Pages 8?

Open the Inspector Palette > Document tab. Select facing pages > set your margins

    Thanks Sweden.  It looks like I should have tried that first before posting that note.

     

    I just remembered that I had tried this before and it just would not work for me however I was probably at fault because I was using landscape pages rather than portrait pages at the time.

     

    I did notice lately in Adobe Reader that there is a menu pick about binding on the short side or binding on the long side but have not really worked with that as yet.

     

    Tks again and Che-ers
