  1. Begin with a new InDesign document. (File>New Document...)
  2. Select “Facing Pages” in the “New Document” dialog box. This will create a document similar to a book or magazine where there is a page on the left and also one on the right and a spread (containing both pages).
  3. Next, select Window>Pages or click on the pages drawer to the right.
  4. This is your pages window. The upper area (red rectangle) shows your page masters (Typically “A-Master, B-Master, etc.)indesign_pages_window-1
  5. The bottom half of the window shows pages currently in your document (red circle). You can double click on a page to show that page. The active page is highlighted in pale blue.
  6. To create a new page in your document, you can click on the new page icon in the lower right corner of the pages window (shown in blue circle).
