I need to create a booklet with 8.5 x 11 pages, but printed on 11 x 17 paper and folded in half. I want to do this correct the first time, because I don't have the time to make mistakes. Please help!
I already have the pages as PDFs, just need to know how to set up the InDesign document correctly so I can place them in.
Which version of InDesign are you using? What's the final output you're looking for - an 11 x 17 PDF, or are you looking to output this directly to a printer on 11 x 17 paper? How many pages are you working with?

There are some illustrations there that may help you understand imposition, whatever your final output is.
