InDesign Printing Issue: Multiple Resource Downloads and Individual Job Listings

I am trying to print a 40 page magazine, A3 folding to A4, which I do bi-monthly, and for some reason InDesign now downloads the resources (images) for each page the amount of times I decide trhe numbr of copies I wish to print.  For instance, if I choose the 250 copies I normally print, it will download the resources 250 x 20 times instead of only once.  Also, when I go to the printer, the job will not be downloaded until the resources have finished downloading (if the program hasn't crashed that is). and when it does, each 20 sheet job is listed individually not as a bulk run.  In the past, I would see a run where the copies would decrease from the 250 mark as the print progressed.  What has changed in InDesign since December '23?

Hi there,

 

Sorry for the trouble you're experiencing while printing in InDesign. Would you mind telling us the version of InDesign installed on your machine and the details of your operating system? Does that happen with every file?

 

Could you please share the screenshot of your Print settings for better understanding?

 

We will try our best to help.

 

Thanks,

Harshika

I am using InDesign 19.3 and haven't changed anything since I printed the previous issue (November/December) which printed without a problem.

Is this screenshot of any assistance?

Regards



Barbara

Maybe you should update to Sonoma 14.4.

Don't print directly from InDesign - Export to PDF and print from Acobat.
