I mention this only because I find this gets a larger booklet off the printer much faster than using the booklet printing features of Acrobat or the various print drivers.

You are also welcome to try this imposition script, exports imposed 2-up printer spreads for saddle stitch or perfect binding:

Sounds like you aren't sending all the pages to print.

I prefer to use a script to impose booklets (though with only four pages it's pretty easy to do it manually by placing your pages into a new document set up on A3), then export to PDF and print that. What version of ID are you using?

I own a Phaser 7800 and you can set duplexing in the print driver to flip on either long or short edge. If one side is upside down you just have to switch the page flip setting.

Best bet is to export the document to PDF

Then use Acrobats built in booklet printing feature.

I have a canon printer and found that if I choose print instead of print booklet from InDesign. Then choose booklet on the canon printer output, it solve this issue. I have to use what I have, but it works.

I have found the same with our bizhub printer. It seems that there are no settings from the InDesign Print Booket that will work properly with this printer, but the Booklet printing built into the print driver works.

I mentioned earlier that I use a script for imposing (then export the imposed file to PDF for printing). I have two scripts written by Dave Saunders years ago, one for files without bleeds, the other for files with. Both still work fine, and are very fast. Dave has taken down his downloads page, but I don't think he would mind if I share them with anyone who wants them.

Bonjour à tous,

 

J'arrive un peu tard après les derniers échanges mais je souhaiterais en savoir plus sur le script de Dave.

Je rencontre depuis longtemps ce problème avec l'imposition lorsque je souhaite faire un "imprimer le cahier". Sur mon mac je ne peux pas exporter un pdf imposé. Je suis donc obligé de faire un postscript PS ou d'imprimer. Malheureusement, je n'obtiens pas un bon résultat. Les pages ne sont pas dans le bon sens, même après avoir régler les options de mise en page et il ne fait pas dee recto-verso.

Merci de votre aide

I've put the two scripts I mentioned  on my site at Hightail.com. you can download them using https://spaces.hightail.com/receive/j4TReIWAYM and the access code InDesign

BuildBooklet makes a copy of the file with shuffled pages. Make booklet makes a new file with the pages imposed into spreads.
