Can I ask why you're using Print Booklet and using PS File/PPD?
This is an archaic way of making a PDF.
A couple of things to realise
- The printer should do imposing, supply as pages 1-end in sequence, do not impose yourself.
- Printing to PDF loses lots of PDF smartness, such as transparency, hyperlinks, and lots of other hidden details for printing goodness
If you need a PDF for yourself to print in house, why not send directly to your printer from InDesign using File>Print Booklet?
Otherwise, for your book use File>Export and choose PDF.
In Acrobat, choose the Print Booklet feature.https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/print-booklets-acrobat-reader.html
It is for Offset Print machine.. I'm French printer.
I need à best PDF quality for prepress without imposing software for some documents.
Print booklet with Ps file and Distiller is important for me.
That's what I already do.
The overview is good for me also , but not the final PS file
Imposing is the task of the offset printer, not yours. You should deliver PDF exported (not printed) as single pages. The rest should do the printer.
Using postscript with InDesign is not a good idea.
Looking at the way you're arranged the pages in InDesign, as printer's spreads, I'm not sure why you'd need Print Booklet at all. Simply exporting to PDF with Spreads selected would yield the same results, without the problems associated with bringing Postscript into the mix.
But Willi is right. If this is going to press, it's unlikely to be printed 1-up, so they'll need to perform further imposition tasks anyway. Your half-imposition is likely to interfere with that. Arrange your InDesign pages in proper order, and export to PDF/X-4.
He IS the printer, according to post 2....
As I said from the start.
Yes I am the Printer.
For details, I would like to create an automation with Indesign and my new press Konica C7000 but Indesign have a problem with small format for imposition.
My problem is on my screenshot.
Consider Montax Imposer, which is a plug-in for Acrobat. Depending upon your requirements, the free version may do all that you desire. The free version is limited by final sheet size. There are a few other paid versions also available. The link goes to the product page.
I personally use the Pro version most every day. I wouldn't want to impose from print booklet if there was anyway to avoid it.
Indesign have a problem with small format for imposition.
As Danny points out your not really imposing anything—you're printing [1,2] and [3,4], you would get the same if you exported spreads.
Looks like some of the bleeds are missing. What happens if you choose a larger page size and include printer marks?
So now you have an A5 PDF to run on what, SRA3? If so, how are you stepping and repeating?
When I used "Print Booklet" and choose PS file / PPD Adobe, my PDF (with distiller) misses just the top and left bleed in my pdf. It was blank.
The problem is for less than A4 size.
My document is a 4 page booklet A6 (closed size).
Thanks in advance.
