'Even' and 'odd' pages from consecutive files in an InDesign book will not combine on a spread when exporting to PDF
When exporting a book with multiple InDesign files to PDF the last 'even' page from document 'x' needs to combine with the first 'odd' page of the next document on a spread.
So let's say document 1 is from page 1-6 and document 2 is from page 7 to page 50, pages 6 and 7 need to merge onto a spread when exporting to PDF. It will now make separate pages, while the pages from one and the same document do come out as spreads.
This can't be by design, surely? Spreads mean spreads and pages means pages... A mixture is no use to anyone! Please fix ASAP
I only need to export the book as spreads in the first place because your document cloud can't show 2-up pages... :(

I'm sure this used to work but it appears to no longer be supported in ID 2020 and 2021. Please bring it back!
Not sure if this is a bug or a setting, since it's worked correctly for me in the past, but I've changed machines (same version of InDesign though) and now it doesn't work. ???
Having this issue too.
I can't get them to print correctly as spreads when sending from the book document.
