[OS X TeX] Displaying in Adobe Reader vs. Preview

Hello, everyone.

I am having trouble with displaying a PDF using Adobe Reader XI (11.0.10) in two-page mode.  Here is a sample:


In Preview 7.0 View > Two Pages, recto pages are correctly displayed on the right, and verso pages on the left.  However, in Adobe Reader XI View > Page Display > Two Page View, recto pages are incorrectly displayed on the left, and verso on the right.

What am I doing wrongly?  How do I ensure that recto pages are displayed on the right, and verso on the left in Adobe Reader, just as they are in Preview?

I used pdflatex, if that makes a difference.

By the way, a second question: How do I ensure that the fonts are embedded in the PDF?  Is that done automatically in pdflatex?  I am using

\newcommand*{\memfontfamily}{qtm}  % http://www.tug.dk/FontCatalogue/tgtermes/
  % extrafontsizes sets the default font for the document to
  % Latin Modern in the T1 font encoding, which is equivalent to
  % \usepackage{lmodern}\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}.
  % memfontfamily "qtm" and memfontpack "tgtermes" substitutes
  % the TeX Gyre Termes font instead.

\usepackage[]{qtxmath}   % math fonts for Gyre Termes

Thanks very much in advance for your help.
