    Problem printing booklet to Postscript file to PDF (Mac)

    spencershwtz

      I am running Mac OSX 10.7.5 and InDesign CC 9.2.1

       

      I am trying to export a booklet to a PDF so I can send it to another machine to print.  I am going to File> Print Booklet and I am printing to a PostScript file. I am then opening it up in Preview and the orientation of the file is messed up.  Below are some screenshots.

       

      So in File>Print Booklet> Preview it shows that I am perfectly inside the guidelines.  Notice it is in landscape mode.

      Then I export it to a .ps file and open it up in Preview (note: I have also tried Acrobat IX Pro). And the file is messed up and in portrait mode.

      From what I can tell it looks like InDesign is exporting the file in portrait instead of landscape but I can't change it in the InDesign Print Booklet settings because it is greyed out.

      Any recommendations on how to fix this problem? Or workarounds so that I can export a booklet to a PDF?  I need to export it in 2-up saddle stitch mode, so I need page 1 to be next to page 12 and so on. 

       

      Thank you for the help!
