For certain PDFs with graphics split over two pages, it is best to view them side-by-side.

Apple's Preview app lets me view two pages side-by-side. This is great!

The only problem is that it's off by one page. For example, if the intended view is the following:

 ___________________
| Banner T|ext Here |
|         |         |
|  34     |     35  |
|         |         |
|_________|___ _____|

what Preview shows is this:

 ___________________
|         | Banner T|
|         |         |
|     33  |  34     |
|         |         |
|_________|___ _____|

|_________|___ _____|

I realize that Apple's choice for Two Page viewing mode is probably optimal for many (most?) situations, but not for mine.

Is there a way to change this behavior--preferably on a per-document basis, but even via an obscure setting somewhere?

(In Windows, Adobe Acrobat displays the pages "correctly". I realize I could just download Adobe Acrobat for Mac, but I'm curious if this can be done in Preview.)

A simple solution is add a blank page next to the first page of the document. So it shifts all pages. Use it from Edit > Insert Blank Page.
