Does InDesign support spreads with pages arranged above-and-below as well as side-by-side? And if not, how do I work around this shortcoming?
I would like to arrange sheets as follows, for a folded map:
where the A2 sheet will first be folded on the red line, then on the purple line, then trifolded into a DL size. The "A" pages are 100x210mm, the "B" pages will be 97x210mm.
I didn't think it would be this hard to find support for this, as cross-folding sheets isn't that unusual. But so far I've only been able to make pages join laterally into a spread. Am I missing something, or is this support simply not in InDesign?
If there isn't such support in InDesign, how do I at least tell alternating spreads to have different bleed & slug settings, so I can pretend that adjacent spreads are actually conjoined? Or to set it up otherwise in such a way that a printer will appreciate what I deliver, instead of either hating me or sending it back for rework?
I know I can create an A2 page and chop it up with guides and arrange everything manually... I was hoping to, you know, use a layout tool for... well, layout.
