I am attempting to export a 17-page letter-sized document formatted with facing pages to Acrobat from InDesign 5.5. When exported, the first page is fine. The rest of the pages, however, come out 2 up per page.
How can I export this document to PDF so that each page, front and back, prints individually?
I'm using the Mac version of ID, OS 10.6.8, 4GB RAM.
Prints or displays?
Did you export as a Print PDF? Interactive will go to spreads automatically.
Which version of ID?
It sounds like exporting spreads is enabled, but how that got that way is highly version dependent. Beginning with CS5 there were two choices for PDF export, print and interactive, and interactive was selected by default. Making things worse, in CS5 there is no way to change from spreads to single pages in the export dialog, so you have to use a script to toggle the setting.

Hah! That did the trick!
