When placing my PDF in the facing layout mode, my first page starts on the right side.  Is there a way I can get my first page to start on the left?

From Carl Young's AcroViews Blog:

1) Open your PDF document.

2) Go into Preview/Hand tool mode.

3) Enter some text and select it.

4) Bring up the Properties Toolbar.

5) Click on More.

6) Click on Paragraph. You have basic paragraph formatting options now, including top, bottom and middle alignment.

This was posted for version 6. It should be applicable to version 7. Let me know if this did/didn't help. :)

Also, I came across the following article that may help you with this as well as other questions you may have:

http://etd.byu.edu/creation/PDFs/Adobe%20Acrobat%20PDFs/UsingAdobeAcrobat.pdf

Starting on page 10 there is some info on text alignment. Again, this document addresses Acrobat 6 and earlier but its instructions should generally be compatible with Acrobat 7.

Let me know if this did/didn't help. :)

Thanks for your comment, but it does quite address what I need.  It is not the text that I need aligned.  I need to whole page to start on the right...In other words, when I open my PDF in facing layout mode I want page 1&2 to will show on the same screen. Right now 1 shows alone and 2&3 shows together.

Ah, I think I better understand your question now. I'm looking into this, but so far I cannot see how it can be done. If I come across something I will be sure to let you know! :)
