Default Two-page view with odd-numbered pages on right

Is there a way to use the View..Print Layout with the Zoom set to Two pages
but have the odd-numbered page on the right, not the left as it defaults to.
I would like to view the document as it would appear if bound.

I need that view quite often too and I do what Jay recommended. But here's a
handy hint, if you like seeing a document with 2 pages or more in Print
Layout, but are sick of using the zoom box, copy the nifty Multiple Page
view button from the Print Preview tool bar onto your normal.dot toolbar.
Then you can see AND EDIT any number of pages viewed in Print View all the
time (with the odds on the right as expected). Hope this helps too.

It's a bit of a hack, but...

Go to the beginning of the document and insert a page break
(Ctrl+Enter). Open the header. Click the Format Page Number button on
the Header/Footer toolbar, and set the page numbers to start at 0. The
blank page 0 will appear on the left of the first pair of pages, which
will correct the display of the rest of the pages. Before you print,
though, you'll have to remove page 0 and reset the numbering to start
at 1.

FWIW, if you have enabled either "Mirror margins" or "Different odd and
even," you will get facing pages in Print Preview, and you CAN edit in Print
Preview (though this is not obvious; you have to turn off the magnifier).

Enjoy it while you can. Partly because this feature was not easily
discoverable (and perhaps partly because it can be dangerous when discovered
by accident), there's been discussion of eliminating it in future versions.
I don't know what the upshot of that discussion was, however.
