It is definitely the left side and not the inside. The page is also centered and should fit the paper size. This happens with all booklets. You guys have been my go to source for as long as I can remember. Thank you!! As a printer I hate when customers impose documents themselves. Great workaround, I can remember when all PDFs from dtp software had to run through distiller, in my first job in a printers 18 years ago we had to buy special RIP software for our printer to generate postscript files, crazy to think how easy it is now adobe are in control of everything!
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Finally a reliable answer. For most people creating a booklet is an unnecessary step if they are going to be sending the file on to be printed commercially. We do not use imposition software as standard so do our own.

The fix: Modify the settings and set the page size correctly for your job. Then open the. PS file. Otherwise, you may lose half the spread! David, thank you for this post!
How to Print as PDF file on a mac
I just used this recently. The printer my company uses is actually a very good printer in terms of quality and accuracy, but surprisingly told me they required custom upload artwork to be in printer spreads. This technique saved me a LOT of time, although I had much better luck running the PostScript file through Distiller rather than using Acrobat Pro, mainly because I was able to quickly assign the PDF preset for this particular printer instead of having to go into the preferences.
Adobe is failing miserably in attempts to hold value for the needs of offset, digital and screen printers. Please do more research before you start passing judgement on printers.

You obviously have a lot to learn. What happens when the postscript file does not respect orientation and page size and although on the preview menu in the print booklet window it appears correctly, the ps file is not in the correct orientation? Please help! When I export the PS it appears in landscape but the distiller creates it in portrait! Why is this happening? The preview in indesign looks right and the preview of the PS file looks right in bridge but the final output is portrait.
I hope this helps. David, I have to disagree completely with a workaround that involves getting into the innards of Distiller.
Today I wanted to print a simple booklet made from an A5 document to make a landscape A4 document that could be taken to a printer. I am at an ashram where files have to be brought to the printing room on a stick, but that is by the by. Distiller, by the way, knows nothing about the dimensions of A4 paper, forcing another trip to recall what they are.
And the default PS file is portrait, not landscape. This is a normal and trivial operation on a PC, and there is no problem saving a document as PDF on the Mac if it is not to be imposed.

Why has Adobe forced another route on users? On a PC, there is also if I remember correctly the option of creating a new document; but that too is missing on the Mac version. This is in fact an opportunity for an InDesign script or an Applescript to feed the dimensions of the imposed document into Distiller and run it in the background without the user having to wade into the Heffalump trap set by Adobe. The correct steps are:- i print the booklet to a Postscript file, using Review to verify that the pages are in the right order the film asks you to specify landscape mode, but I cannot do that at this stage — the options for paper size are greyed out, perhaps because I have never installed a physical printer on the Mac then ii drag and drop the file onto Acrobat Distiller, making sure to specify landscape mode which you may have to set up first.
Finally:- iii Count your blessings! There is not a word on this procedure from Adobe.
Good luck with the heffalumps! Instead of physically printing the booklet the driver creates a PDF out of the document. The result is essentially the same as exporting a document to a PDF, but the method it uses is slightly different. My cover which showed in the InDesign preview is not showing up once I converted and it is throwing the whole file off!
Any idea why this is happening? I am having one small issue. All I get is a regular 8. Hope that works for you. Hey, at least it worked… Thanks for all the tips here, folks. It was only on the Mac. One reason for using the Print Booklet function, besides needing to print on a desktop printer, is to adjust for page creep. The print booklet function does this very well, moving content ever so slightly inward to compensate for page creep in saddlestitch binding.
So, I am trying to use print booklet on a 16 page document. When I go through the Print Booklet options it shows my 16 pages. However when I save it out to PS it only give me the even numbers.

Any thoughts? Of course my client needs this tomorrow.
They are printing double sided. Let me ask, after you click [Print Booklet…] and then, in the Print Booklet menu that opens, click on [Print Settings…] which printer do you have selected? If you are using an actual printer to directly print the booklet you may need to click [Setup] at the bottom , select the printer and then go into [Preferences].
Good luck! The solution: Print to PostScript then distill it. I cannot believe they removed this feature — when we send to a local vendor they want booklet spreads, and we use bleeds. Any suggestions? I have tried multiple files — i can not get a postscript file bigger than an 8. It starts on page 12 then goes 2, 10, 4, 8, 6. Pages 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11 are not there. No matter what I do, I end up with a 2. It still seems off. Your email address will not be published. Our guide to discovering all the great resources on the site! Sign Up Today!
