I had to switch to a mac over the weekend (my windows CPU's power supply went out), causing me to have to download CS6 trial versions of programs I had grown accustomed to from CS5.1 on windows. Anyways, doing my magazine for class in InDesign 6 and I got to the part where I need to "print booklet", and turn it into a postscript file. I did everything the way I was supposed to and then look at the PDF after distilling, and only half of the page shows. The PPD option where you can choose "Adobe PDF" is not showing any other option than "Device Independent". I can't customize the size of the paper from anything except 8 1/2 x 11 which is too small. I need 11x14. I don't know what to do and I've been trying to find solutions... I definitely do not want to have to re-do the whole thing because of this simple little thing, and I am running out of time (only have about 2-3hrs left). Please help... Thanks
You need to download and install the ADPDF9.PPD file if you want to print to PDF using Print Booklet. You can find more in this article: Creating PostScript Files in Snow Leopard for Older Print Workflows | InDesignSecrets. Another alternative is to use a script to impose your booklet and then export to PDF for printing, or you may want to look at the IDImposer plugin, normall $49, but offered free until the end of this month: Overview | IDImposer
Hey thanks for the link to the IDImposer. While it is a little confusing to use, it seems that it was the only option that worked. Now I am going to go try printing it out and see if everything turns out okay. Seriously all the other options and stuff I read, they don't work if you have new versions of Acrobat and whatnot. I wish my other CPU worked right now, what a headache. Thanks again!
