    Placing & scaling a multi-page PDF in InDesign?


      I need to place a 300+ page PDF that is 8 1/2 x 11 into an InDesign doc that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, and have the PDF pages scale proportionately to the smaller size.….can anyone help? In the "Place" command there is no option for this; yes, I can import then scale the pages one at a time but to have to do that 300+ times is simply ridiculous. There is what seems to be a great script here:

      however, there is no way I can figure out how to get to the dialog box pictured in the article. All I can do is right click on the script itself and tell it to run, but it doesn't bring up that snazzy little dialog box.......Am I missing something? Is there a particular folder inside the Scripts folder where I must place this script? And then is there some specific menu I must go to to bring up that dialog box?


      Many thanks in advance!
