You produce the PDF using the InDesign Adobe PDF Presets.
If the PDF is for people to print out on their desk-top printer select High Quality Print.
In the Export Adobe PDF dialogue box you can select the pages and whether it's to be single pages or spreads and there are other choices.
thanks for your answer, but when i go over the export funktion, the sites are not in the right order like 30-3,4-29,24-7,8-25,22-11,12-21,18-15,16-17.
If I understand you correctly, your newspaper is a 30 page saddle stitched booklet, and some of the pages have been pre-printed. You want to print new content on some of the pages and you need to create a print ready file in printer's spreads from your file that is built normally (in reader's spreads). You have a few options, you can print your single page PDF as a booklet from Acrobat (File> Print> Page Size & Handling) which will give you your desired printer's spreads. Or you could make a new InDesign file to the spread size, and place the original InDesign pages into it in printer's spread order. The preprinted ad pages could be included on a separate layer that could be turned on and off, (or set to non-printing). Do your regular editing to the original file and update the links to the new file and re-export to PDF for each new edition.
Yes, you understand right. I've tried to create the booklet from Acrobat, but theres the same problem as in InDesign, i got an error: the function is not available in the printer menu.
I think the only way is to create a second document with the new layout and copy the content by hand from one document to the other and save it to PDF. This is very uncomfortable as the method with the PDF Printer.
Just to be clear, you do not need to copy the content from the original document, you can place the original InDesign document into the new document, treating the original document as linked art. So when you make changes to your original document, the changes will also occur in the new document (when the links are updated upon opening it).
If you want to print it as a booklet, then export to a PDF in the correct flow of pages from page 1-end
Then you can use Acrobat to File>Print and choose booklet from there Print booklets using Acrobat or Reader
If you're sending this a professional printers they would require the pages readers spreads, not as printers spreads. Difference between printer's spread and reader's spread on booklets | Design Basics
Luke, can you explain it to me how does this work with the links between two documents, or do you have an link?
Sure, create a new blank document to the size of your spread page, go to File> Place, and choose your original InDesign file as the file to be placed. Place all pages in the correct printer's spread order (30+1, 2+29, etc.). The link in the new document is the original InDesign document. When the original document is edited and saved, the new document will include the changes (upon opening and updating the link).
Tip: this won't help you for this project, but you can use the script- "Place multipage PDF" to automatically place a multipage InDesign file into a new InDesign file.
Yes luke you can do that - but you're not thinking about bleed and bleeding over the spine. For a small page count it's an easy fix, but for a larger page count it's a lot of work.
Generally - there's no need to set up as printers spreads.
