I need to place a 300+ page PDF that is 8 1/2 x 11 into an InDesign doc that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, and have the PDF pages scale proportionately to the smaller size.….can anyone help? In the "Place" command there is no option for this; yes, I can import then scale the pages one at a time but to have to do that 300+ times is simply ridiculous. There is what seems to be a great script here:
however, there is no way I can figure out how to get to the dialog pictured in the article. All I can do is right click on the script itself and tell it to run, but it doesn't bring up that snazzy little dialog box.......Am I missing something? Is there a particular folder inside the Scripts folder where I must place this script? And then is there some specific menu I must go to to bring up that dialog box?
Many thanks in advance!
Use the updated version, which you'll find at InDesignSecrets » Blog Archive » Zanelli Releases MultiPageImporter for Importing both PDF and INDD Files
If you don't see the dialog, odds are that you didn't actually install the script into ID. For that, see How to install scripts in InDesign | InDesignSecrets
