Default Two Page (side by side) preview with odd pages on right

In its 2-up preview mode, Word defaults to showing page 1 and subsequent odd
pages on the left side rather than the right side. Is there a way to force
word to show odd pages on the right when previewing. Odd pages are right
pages.

Default Two Page (side by side) preview with odd pages on right

If you have selected either "Different odd and even" (Layout tab of Page
Setup) or "Mirror margins" (Margins tab of Page Setup), you'll see facing
pages.

Thanks, Suzanne, but that wasn't my question. Getting a 2-up preview is easy.
Making Word display odd numbered pages on the right side is the question. The
first row in 2-up should show only a page on the right side, which should be
an odd page.

Is there a way to do that?

Actually, if you want to see how it should display, just export such a
document to a PDF file and view in Adobe Reader.

I wasn't telling you how to get a "2-up preview." I was telling you how to
get facing pages, which is what you asked. By "facing" pages, I mean recto
on the right and verso on the left, as in a book. Did you try what I
suggested?

Default Two Page (side by side) preview with odd pages on right

It *does* work, at least in Word 2003 (and every previous version AFAR). I
have a four-page test document. If I select "Mirror margins" then switch to
Print Preview and choose 1x2 pages, I get page 1 on the right. Paging down,
I get pages 2 and 3, then 4. Same if I check "Different odd and even."
Either of those settings has the desired result.

Default I'm two years late, but the problem is the same one :]

Hi there, I have the same problem that TheMint identified and the PageSetup window does not address it. In the Two-Page View (which displays pages side by side) We need to see the first page on the right (its on the left by default). If you tell us how to do that, it will solve our problem.

Help!

The answer has not changed, regardless of what Word version you have. There
is no way to see facing pages in Print Layout view, but you can see facing
pages in Print Preview if you have "Different odd and even" (headers and
footers) or "Mirror margins" enabled.

Default I'm two years late, but the problem is the same one :]

5 years later... but as I haven't found a better solution here is my workaround:
- Zoom to fit two pages in Print Layout view
- insert page break right at the beginning of the document (i.e. create a blank first page). This will temporarily shift all the odd pages over to the right
- do all the editing you need to do then delete the page break.
