    I know that you can show facing pages using View>inspector>documents. But, this does not place the pages side by side, Is there any way that say page 1 and page 2 can be shown and worked on side by side so you do not have to scroll up and down to view them?

    well, this reply is, oh, say, 3 years late... but anyway

    I found this post while looking for the solution to this question, then found the answer.

    You need to go to the bottom left corner and click the magnification % and check "One Up"

    hehe i don't think i should be reviving this topic, but oh well...

    Inconsistent menus

    Very helpful, especially since the zoom menu in the bottom right is different from the View > Zoom menu. I didn't occcur to me that the 2-up choice might be on the bottom menu but not the top one.

    So, thanks!

    Thank you for going against what you thought!

    I'm a song writer, and need to keep up to five other audio applications running while reading my lyrics. One up on wide screens doesn't show enough of the song. I really need badly to be able to see the whole song so I don't have to scroll. This keeps my hands free to play and manipulate external audio interfaces.

    By all means, if anyone else finds this, bump it up with a hearty "Thank you very much!" I'm sure there are a lot of others out there who don't realize this feature is in the program.

    Thanks very much once again! This thread, more than 5 years old now, was the first link google offered when I asked it iwork pages side by side. So sweet!

    FWIW, I wound up in the "two up" view when I inadvertently checked, and then unchecked, the "Facing Pages" option in the Document Inspector. Went a little batty for about 10 mins trying to find the option to undo the two-up view before coming across this thread.

    Kudos!

    Looks like you reviving the topic after 3 years has made many people happy, including me (7 years after the original question and 4 years after your answer)!

    Hi i want to know how you can center the page so that instead of there being grey space on the right, they will be on the left and right
