    Recently when I’m placing text in a two-pages-per-spread template using Autoflow, extra pages are added to each spread, sometimes totaling ten pages on a spread. An error message appears, something like “Maximum of ten pages per spread”.

    The text appears only in the first two pages on the spread and the rest of the pages are blank. All of the pages have the master page items.

    Maybe Autoflow is trying to add all of the text to one spread? Is there a setting that controls this?

    I have a screenshot but I’m not sure how to share it.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Is your document setup to “Facing pages”? It should.

    Is your master a 2-page matter?

    And is your pages set to:”Allow dokument pages to shuffle” and “Allow selected pages to shuffle”?
    If not, Indesign simply will insert pages in the same spread.

    Checking “Allow document pages to shuffle” fixed the problem. Thank you!
