    How to see progress of PDF being Exported/Disable Background PDF export?

    Av8rdan Level 1

      Just recently upgraded to Indesign CS5.5 and am noticing lots of littlehings I cannot solve on my own. One of these is that I cannot see the progress of a PDF being exported, so with larger files, I am constantly clicking to export, and then go to the desktop to see the exported PDF...but when I try to open what appreas to be a done file, I get errors saying the file is unable to be opened because it is use by another application (Indesign).

       

      So a simple solution of seeing the PDF export dialogue box stay at the top of my stack while it is still exporting (like my old Indiesign CS3) would solve this issue, or some way to disable the background exporting mode for PDF output.
