For budget reasons we are still using CS4 and probably will be for at least another 6 months to a year. We understand that we can place InDesign documents into other InDesign documents, but I'm concerned about problems that may arise when we send it to our printer to run through their RIP. I've read some blogs about various issues. Does anyone have any experience working this way with CS4 or could advise us of any issues with this type of workflow? Right now we just save the pages out as an eps and pull it into our ID files, but it would be nice to eliminate that extra step if at all possible. Thanks!
If you like to place ID files, place ID files. It's your handoff that raises a question. Build your document with placed ID pages and export to pdf as a final handoff.
