I have been using InDesign today to print off a 28page booklet. I have my document setup per screen grab 1 attached. As I need to print one sheet at a time (in order to turn over to print next spread), I need to select pages in particular that I want to print.
When going to print, I setup my printer to use A3 paper size, printing landscape. I want to select p.28&1 to print off as my cover. This however does not print off as 1 spread (even though I have selected to print as spreads). How this appears, is to print off 2 pages, 1 sheet with Page 28 and a blank, the other sheet with page 1 and a blank - see screen grab 2 attached. I am unsure how to print these side by side?
The reason I am printing this way as opposed to selecting 'Print booklet' as I need to rotate sheets of paper, re-load to tray and individually print off spreads in order to make up this booklet. Can anyone assist or advise how to sort this? It prints all other pages as paginate spreads if I select it, just not the first and last pages which are currently single panels in the ID doc.
Some guidance would be highly appreciated.
There are a number of options...
Use Print Booklet to print to postscript file using the ADBPDF9.PPD printer description, then distill to PDF and print from Acrobat. See Creating PostScript Files in Snow Leopard for Older Print Workflows | InDesignSecrets
Export to PDF and use Actobat's booklet function,
Use a script like Dave Saunders' basic booklet script (http://pdsassoc.com/downloads/Buildbooklet.zip) to impose, then export spreads to PDF and print from Acrobat, or one of Sterling Computing's older scripts: Steve Sterling legacy ID imposition scripts
Use an imposition plugin like IDImposer: Overview | IDImposer
