Adding A Gatefold (Flash Only)

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

Note: You will need 2 PDF pages that each share the same dimensions in a combined PDF file. Depending on which side of a spread the gatefold is being placed on, the 2 PDF pages will be combined as follows: For the left side, the outside page (Side A) and inside page (Side B) are to be a combined in that order; Page 1 being the outside of the left side (outside meaning the left side when the gatefold is closed) and Page 2 being the inside of the left side (inside meaning the left side when the gatefold is open). For the right side, the inside page (Side A) and outside page (Side B) are to be a combined in that order; Page 1 being the inside of the right side (inside meaning the right side when the gatefold is open) and Page 2 being the outside of the right side (outside meaning the right side when the gatefold is closed).
