I'm using the PrintBooklet feature of Indesign.
I'm using "2-up perfect bound".
All I want to do is: print "even pages only, reverse", then flip the paper, feed it back into the printer, and print "odd pages only, reverse"on the other side. (In both cases, I will check ALL pages, as I want the program to go thru the whole book in doing that.)
Problem: I can't get the section in Print Settings to "un-grey" that "Even pages only, Odd pages only" stuff.
In other words, I have a small test booklet consisting (as one looks at the screen) of 8 pages, page 1 (by itself on the screen)
...................pages 2 and 3 (facing each other on the screen)
...................pages 4 and 5 (facing each other on the screen)
...................pages 6 and 7 (facing each other on the screen)
(Those are the logical page numbers - the physical page numbers, being 1,2,3, and 4 - 2 logical pages facing each other, but not as they face each other on the screen - instead, as I want them to print facing each other.)
So what I want to happen, is:
have the printer print ONLY logical pages 8 and 5 (on one piece of paper),
then logical pages 1 and 4 (on another piece of paper)
(those were the "even pages only", in reverse order)
I'd take those physical pieces of paper, flip them over, put them back in the printer, and have the printer print logical pages 6 and 7 on the back of 8 and 5,
then logical pages 2 and 3 (on the back of 1 and 4)
(those were the "odd pages only", in reverse order)
This makes what I call TWO 4-page (page referring in this case to logical page) signatures. They can be folded and then what the reader will read is (beginning from the title page, which is logical page 1): 1, turn the page, 2 and 3, turn the page to see the back of the first 4-page signature (4), look over to the first page of the second 4-page signature and read 5, turn the page, read 6 and 7, then turn to the last page which is 8.
I could do this in Pagemaker 6.5, using the BuildBook feature.
