Print Booklet Missing Pages

Hey all! Some InDesign troubles here. I'm using CS5.


I have a business plan all ready to roll in InDesign; 40 pages, master pages, the works. I go to 'print booklet' so I can whisk it off to Staples to be printed coheriently, go through the dialogue boxes and everything looks good. I can see the 20 spreads, and I save it as the post script file.


Onto Acrobat Pro! I open the ps file in Pro, and it automatically converts it to a PDF as it should. But, there are only 20 pages, not 20 spreads. Half of my document is missing. Maybe I overlooked something when I was saving the ps booklet, or maybe I'm missing some display setting in Pro, but I can't figure it out!


Thanks for the help!

    Export as a facing pages pdf.

    Call a small printer in your town and get their email or ftp address; they need the work and won't ask for Spreads.

    Stop at Staples for report covers and paper clips on the way to pick up the Business Plan from the printer later that afternoon.

    Sounds like the page size is set incorrectly inthe postscript file....
