You usually don’t need to bleed into the inner margins of two facing pages (aka the gutter) of your InDesign layouts. In other words, most of the time, you don’t need your images or other decorative elements to extend beyond the edge of the side of the page that will be bound in the spine of a book or magazine. But there are a few occasions when you do want that—for example, if your book is spiral bound. But where’s the bleed area with facing pages?
This week in InDesign Secrets, David Blatner shows you a trick for splitting facing pages to create a bleed area in the gutter. The secret lies in the Pages panel: a little-known option called Allow Document Pages to Shuffle. David also shows you what to do when you have an image that spans across facing pages that you would like to split.
