I have an indesign book with 32 documents, where each document is a chapter. The documents were all in a size of 16 x 23 cm but now a new publisher has asked to change the size to 15.24 x 22.86 cm. How can I change all documents within the indesign book at once? Do you have a script for this?

Let's try to run this simple script from the batch processor:

 

main();

function main() {
	var doc = app.activeDocument;
    doc.adjustLayout( {width:'15.24cm', height: '22.86cm'} );
}

 

Like so:

Besides width and height, you can use other parameters:  bleedInside, bleedTop, bleedOutside, bleedBottom, leftMargin, topMargin, rightMargin, bottomMargin. Check out the adjustLayout method for details.

You also have the option to export to pdf and change the page size in Acrobat using a preflight profile. Tools> Print Production> Preflight> Fixups.

Note, you can duplicate an existing preflight profile using the "Options" menu, then edit it to include the desired settings.
