ReaderSpread object (Publisher)

Represents the reader spread (not the printer spread) for the page. A reader spread generally contains one or two pages. The ReaderSpread object properties provide information about whether pages are facing and how those pages are laid out. For example, in facing page view, pages two and three can be side-by-side or one on top of the other.


Use the Page.ReaderSpread property to access the ReaderSpread object for a page.

Use the PageCount property to determine if the reader spread includes one page or two facing pages.


This example checks to see if the reader spread includes fewer than two pages. If it does, it changes the reader spread to include two pages.

Sub SetFacingPages() 
 With ActiveDocument 
 If .Pages.Count >= 2 Then 
 If .Pages(2).ReaderSpread.PageCount < 2 Then _ 
 .ViewTwoPageSpread = True 
 End If 
 End With 
End Sub
