Error when printing booklet - Images go missing or out of place

Hello everyone,

I'm having a problem printing a booklet to postscript, to later open it in Distiller and convert it to PDF. Some images disappear and others are out of place.
For information, the PDF was sent to me by my client, having been saved from Word to PDF by him. This problem also happens when directly printing the booklet from InDesign to the printer, but if you save to PDF on separate pages, instead of booklet, the images come out correctly where they should.

I'm attaching pictures of what is happening - one with one of the pages with the error and another image of what should have been a correct export (I have made a "manual" imposition on Illustrator through a script as a workaround for this issue).

Does anyone know what might be happening?

Thanks in advance.

I don't understand where InDesign comes in. You say you got a PDF from a client. If you need a booklet, use Acrobat's booklet feature and print from there.

Hello,

In this case I cant print directly from Acrobat's booklet feature because it will reduce de size of the pages, and as a result it will leave a margin on the cover (cutting the bike). And it's an 82 pages booklet to be saddle stiched, so I need some bleed and creep options too.

Turn off the scaling in the print dialog.

Have already tried that, it still does the scaling. On multiple printers... Printing through the booklet printing option on Acrobat does the scaling even though it's disabled...
