Noobie question - Macromedia Freehand

I am laying out a multiple page broucher. On some of my pages I want to have graphics taht span two pages continously. Is it easier when I go to print to have each page separate or can I make some pages (the ones with the continuous graphics) double width? In my case one 8.5x11 or 17x11? Thanks for your help!...

    You need to ask your printer what size paper signature they will be printing
    on.

    As darrel said, it depends upon the page size that is being printed on.
    Most printed "books" are done on "double width" sheets, but that does
    not mean that all spreads print as spreads. When a book is put together
    in this fashion the front cover is printed directly next to the back
    cover and so on to the middle two pages. So...on an 8 page book these
    are the printing pairs (numbers in order from left to right as it is
    actually printed):

    8-1
    2-7
    6-3
    4-5

    As you can see ONLY 8-1 (front/back over) and 4-5 are true spreads in
    that they print together in the same way they appear in the book. So if
    you are doing a spread for pages 2-3 the spread will actually be split
    up onto two separately printed sheets. You can design them together but
    they will ultimately be split by your or the printer. With this in mind
    it's not recommended to have too much of an integrated spread on pages
    that are not true spreads. You especially don't want to run paragraphs
    of text across pages that are not true spreads.

    ON THE OTHER HAND...

    The pages may all be printed on 8.5 x 11 sheets and then bound together
    somehow, much like a three ring binder. In this case you can design
    them as spreads but they will have to be separated to individual sheets
    before printing.
