Export multiple PDF files from one InDesign file

Hello all,
I have several multi-page product sheets in an InDesign file.

Example:
Page 1-6 = product sheet 1
Page 7 - 12 = product sheet 2
Page 13 - 18 = product sheet 3

Is there a way that InDesign creates 3 PDF files with "one click"?

I would be very grateful for your help.

Hi Alex,

if all three segments of your document are set up as three page sections in your Pages panel you could use a Peter Kahrel script to export documents by section. It should work like that:

 

[1] Move the InDesign document to a new InDesign book file first.

[2] Install and execute the script pdf_individuals where option "Export individual sections" is enabled.

 

More details under "Export individual sections" and the download link to the script:

You would need a script for something like that. There is no native solution.
