I think it would be easier to extract the pages in Acrobat after making the PDF...
I am in Adobe, under the Extract options. What do I specify. Right now it says:
FROM Spread 1 of 4 - Pages(8, 1) TO Spread 1 of 4 - Pages(8, 1) OF 4
What do I type in for this to be 1 & 8 plus 2 & 7 (which would then be printed out double-sided) and 3 & 6 plus 4 & 5 (also double-sided printing).
As a back-up with manual double-sided printing, I'd also like to create 1 & 8, 2 & 7, 3 & 6, and 4 & 5 as separate pdf files.
I checked off "extract pages as separate files"
I think to get odds and evens you 'll need to extract one at a time, so spread 1 to spread 1, then spread 2 to spread 2, and so forth. You can recombine the ods and the evens into two PDFs afterwards, or leave them all as separate files.
Got it. Thanks.
