No, and we aren't trying to make it difficult at all.
Your syndicate splits the files into single pages. Other syndicates,
because of the way they allocate work to transcribers need them to be
transcribed as two pages to a file.
Each syndicate should proceed in the way that suits it best. We aren't
going to make you combine files, neither are we going to make other
syndicates split their files.
