I'm having an issue with print booklet in Indesign CS5.5. I haven't used it before, so I'm not too familiar with it, but here's my problem:
I'm printing out the document (comprised of letter-size facing pages) as a PostScript file, then converting to PDF with Distiller. When I preview the document in the print booklet dialogue box, it looks good, and shows all the pages facing one another in the correct order. But when I print the PostScript file and use Distiller to convert it to a PDF, all I get in my final file are the even pages (the "left" pages).
I'm trying to print my file on tabloid paper so that my booklet ends up letter size. But the pages that print booklet is sending out are only letter sized. It's like somehow in the process, the odd pages are cut off and I only end up with letter-sized even pages.
Any idea what I'm doing wrong? How can I get the pages to end up on Tabloid size paper and not lose any pages?
Any help you might be able to offer would be highly appreciated!

Sounds like the file is not set to tabloid in the postscript so it's cropping off the right hand side. Printing to postscript for distiller is pretty complex on Mac these days. You need to use the AdobePDF ppd, not device independent, and I don't believe it's installed anywhere by default.

Installing that PPD did it! Thanks. For anyone else looking for the PPD file, it can be found here (along with install instructions): http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/852/cpsid_85257.html#main_InstallAcroPPD.
