InDesign 5.5 Print Booklet as PDF

I am trying to print a PDF booklet (printer spreads) from InDesign 5.5. Print as PDF no longer appears to be an option (if you know how do do this let me know!) so I created a print preset to print a PostScript file. The file generates. When opened in Acrobat 10 it is almost the way I want EXCEPT I can't seem to control the page set-up and the page set-up options are grayed out in the PostScript print set-up. I want an 8.5 x 11 horizontal file and I keep getting a 8.5 x 11 vertical file (with sides cropped). The preview from Print Booklet looks the way I want, but opening the PS file is not retaining what I see in the preview.


Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

    You'll find a fairly complete discussion in the comments here: InDesignSecrets » Blog Archive » Acrobat’s Adobe PDF Printer Replaced in Snow Leopard as well as several threads here on this forum if you search.

    Did you read the comments in that article? There is a discussion of printing to postscript, and the necessity to dowload the Acrobat 9 ppd, along with a link.

    Yes. Use the Acrobat 9 ppd.
