InDesign 2024 Print Booklet

I've been searching these discussions for the workaround since ADPDF9.PPD doesn't work anymore, nor is there an Adobe PDF Printer option. I have my spreads set up and am using the Print Booklet command. But the options to set the output to 11x17 are grayed out. The Printer is a Postscript File, and the PPD is Device Independent. The resulting output is half the spread (8.5 x 11) as a Postscript file, which converts to PDF when clicked on but is useless. 

 

I'm on a deadline to create 5 translated booklets! And I don't want to manually do the printer spreads. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Is there a reason the printer is not handling the imposition, or are you the printer?

The Zip file that holds that PPD launches a broken page with a link to Adobe Help page. I haven't been able to find that PPD anywhere else. Do you know where it can be downloaded?

Is there a reason your printer isn’t handling the imposition? Any decent printer should be imposing at output when the press and bindery specs are known.

Thanks @rob day Your post made me search deeper. Most links to that PPD are in an archive that leads to that dead page. But I finally found a non stuffed on, created the PPDs folder in InDesign Presets, and voila! You were right, it still works. Thanks for the push.
