We have a lot brochures which we provide both in hard copy as in digital version (PDF).
A minor annoyance with the digital versions, is that i have to choose between all spreads, or no spreads.
Take the screenshot for example: i would like pages 1-5 exported as single pages, page 6-7 (marked in red) as a spread,...
Is there a way to tell InDesign which spreads should be exported as spreads, and which not?
I don't want to export the complete PDF in spreads.
One solution i thought of is to turn the spreads into 1 page directly in InDesign, but that would mess up the export of the PDF for the hard copy. For obvious reasons, i don't want to make and maintain 2 different INDD files.
It's not such a big deal, but tips for choosing spreads selectively are very much appreciated!
Have you considered exporting ranges as separate PDFs and combining in Acrobat?
Thanks, that's a solution i didn't think of.
Unfortunately it's a bit a hassle to do this, especially knowing our files change very regularly.
I was hoping for a more automated solution.
For example, the "allow spreads to shuffle" parameter could perhaps be used upon exporting to PDF, to tell InDesign which pages should be single and which spreads should be kept together.
A new feature for future versions, Adobe?
