I have a gatefold cover with 3 pages. Currently, when I select spreads I can export all pages as 1 single pdf but it is possible to select spreads & export 2 pages out of the 3 pages? For example, pages 2&3 or 1&3 as 1 single PDF
I just tried, and couldn't make it work, but maybe someone else knows of a way.
A spread is a spread. All pages in that spread. 🙂
Export the first two pages of the spread ( not using the spread option ), that would make a PDF with two pages.
Import the two pages to a new InDesign page sized to the format of two pages and export again.
Untried, but would it not be easier to temporarily drag one of the pages out of the spread in the Pages panel?
That's exactly the workaround I used but was wondering If I'm trying to do is possible or not
Yep. Note: Always work with PDF/X-4 when doing this workaround so that no transparency is flattened and applied color profiles could be included in the PDF files.
In AcrobatPro you can use Print Production>Set Page Boxes and the Cropbox Right margin to the page width. That will crop out the extra page in the "spread"
I had the same issue, with a 6 page spread wanting to export as individual pages.
I opened the PDF file in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, clicked 'organise pages' and then selected 'extract' - this exported all pages as individual files. Hope that helps!
