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.
My town (and any near) is smaller than any small printer you might be thinking of; it's a pretty rural area, and Staples makes for the best printing solution.
Not sure how to set the paper size in the postscript file; everything is greyed out. I have the document set up to be printed on reagular 8.5x11 pages (the InDesign document is set at that size), but still the postscript file spits out only half of whole 40-page doc. I turned off bleeds (not using them anyway) in hopes that that would fix it, but nothing changed.
Thanks! This was the solution! Under the printer settings putting PPD to PDF allowed me to tweak the page settings. I put it to 11x17 and everything lined up like it should.
Thanks Daniel for the solution.
