Double page layout

A short introduction to the Double page layout

A double-page layout feature is useful, especially when working on a magazine, newspaper, or book. And it also brings a great visual aspect to any publication.

You're able to choose a double-page layout display for your publications. It’s very straightforward, so let’s go over it down below.

Once you are in Design Studio, all you need to do is select the Pages tab on the right side of your screen.

Once clicked, a popup tab will appear, and you’ll see two tabs at the top, one labeled as single and the other as double.

Next, simply click the double-page layout, and your Design Studio will do all the rest for you. Finally, scroll down to see a side-by-side page view of your publication.

This view is beneficial for anyone who wants to get a vivid image of the final product. If something doesn’t line up quite right, all it takes is a quick edit, and it’s all fixed.

Important things to keep in mind regarding the double-page designs

All of the design elements added in Design Studio across 2 pages (text boxes, pictures, etc.) with the double-page feature turned on will be considered anchored to the left page.

So, if you switch to the single-page editing mode after you finish your design, then the design element will only appear on the page on the left. This is because the design elements will not be automatically duplicated or split as you switch the design mode to a single page.

We recommend that you decide right from the start what type of design mode you'll be using and stick with it. Also, keep in mind that the design model you're using will have implications on the Layout style - how your publication appears on mobile and desktop devices.

Note: If the view is selected for a double-page layout, you won't add shadows on pages. Also, only a double-page layout will be available if you're editing in a double-page view.
