Adding A Barn Door (Flash Only)

Note: This feature is only supported in our Flash desktop viewer.  

Note: 4 PDF files that each share the same dimensions are needed to create a Barn Door. These dimensions need to be half of the standard PDF page size of the issue in width and the same in height. For example, if the standard PDF page size of the issue is 650x350, then each file will need to be 325x350.
After the pages have been sized correctly, they will need to be combined per side. For the left side of the barn door, the outside page (A-L) and inside page (B-L) are to be combined in that order; Page 1 being the outside of the left side (outside meaning the left side when the barn door is closed) and Page 2 being the inside of the left side (inside meaning the left side when the barn-door in open). For the right side, the inside page (A-R) and outside pag e(B-R) are to be a combined in that order; Page 1 being the inside of the right side (inside meaning the right side when the barn-door is open) and Page 2 being the outside of the right side (outside meaning the right side when the barn door is closed).
