When you drag a page next to another, you have a choice as to how the pages are rearranged. With shuffling turned on, when the new page moves into position it forces other pages to the next spread (Figure 5). With shuffling turned off, when the new page is inserted into the spread the other pages do not move from the spread (Figure 6).

Figure 5   

When Allow Shuffling is turned on, a page moved between two other pages forces one of the pages to the next spread.

Figure 6   

When Allow Shuffling is turned off, a page moved between other pages is inserted between the pages, without moving the original pages.
