Here's how to add a facing page to the existing document, have
it your way, and go to town rearranging the illustration's group:
Hide the Text layer by clicking its eye icon on the
Ungroup the headline and then delete the text, but not
the “This!” graphic. You'll need to retype this headline
because this layout will feature it unrotated, and it's
not worth your time trying to precisely align the text's
baseline to a perfect horizon.
Click on the burger and then choose Arrange | Remove
Soft Group ( CTRL - ALT - U ).
One object at a time, pull the onions, pickles—all that
good stuff—apart vertically but keep them horizontally
centered. Take care that some of the shadow objects
don't come unaligned—there's a shadow on the cheese
and one casting from the onion, and these are all partially
transparent feathered objects. You'll put them where
they are appropriate, according to how you
decompile the burger.
With the Text Tool, type the headline
on the Bottom Bun layer, and then
arrange the object icons on the Object
gallery so that the headline is below the
drawing of the bottom bun. This is for
a design look.
CTRL - SHIFT - O to open the Options
box. Click the Page Size tab.
Click the Double-Page Spread button.
Then click Apply and then OK to
dismiss the box. It's that easy to make
a two-page spread.
Marquee-select all the burger elements by using the
Selector Tool, apply the Soft Group arrangement to
the elements, and then put the illustration right in the
gutter of the spread. This might dampen the effect of the
illustration a little when it's bound into a magazine, but
designers crop unessential visual elements to the gutter
and page borders all the time. And you cannot run text
across a publication border unless you're certain it's the
