Forum Question: How Do I Save a Pdf To Open As 2 Page Spread Using Pages?

Hello I am having trouble working out how to save a .pdf file to open as a double page spread in pages. I want the file to open this way by default instead of people having t o change their settings once open.
Any help would be much appreciated!

    I don’t think there is any way to force Preview to open a document in two-page view instead of one-page view. As you noted, they can switch once the document is open. But I don’t think the document itself saves any information about which would be the default way to view the document.
    One alternative is to simply produce a document that has wide pages, simulating a two-page view in one page. For instance, make it 17 inches wide and 11 inches high. That would be the way to do it if you are creating a brochure or poster-like document.

    Thank you, I thought that might be the case. Perhaps a link to a flip book version would be easier. Thank you for your response.
