I'm sorry I am completely new at this. I just downloaded InDesign. I have been getting away with using Pages on my Mac but I need bleeds and crop marks now and thus need InDesign. I have produced a brochure on Pages and it's ready to go. In the past I was able to use Adobe Reader or some other export to produce crop-marks for print ready material but it has all changed so I am forced to us InDesign. I will (eventually) train on this properly, but in the meantime I have time sensitive material. Is there a way to export my Pages document to InDesign? I tried to do a .pdf but the import into InDesign came up really bad (pixeled etc.) OR am I doomed to redo the whole project?
I know you're all above me experience wise, but if you throw me a bone I'd appreciate it!
You cannot export from Pages to ID, though you could export to RTF and use File > Place... to import the thext, but you'd need to rebuild the layout.
Placed PDF is essentially a graphic, so your pixelation may just be the default preview quality. Try View > Display Performance > High Quality Display (and you can set this as the default in the prefs). Keep in mind, though, that the imported PDF is not editable in ID.
Thank you Peter. I appreciate your response. I will give this a shot. I took Graphic Design a hundred years ago...I can draw you a mean font style by hand...haha...
I think Pages saves as a Microsoft Word file as well as RTF. Both should work.
