Sending Booklet to Print

I am suddenly having a problem sending a 44-page booklet to my printer.  I have a print run of 250 and it tries to download the resources 250 times instead of once.  Of course, the system won't cope with this and crashes so I have to do a 10-copy run which is frustrating, has an InDesign update caused this?

Export the project to PDF and print from that. Always a good idea with complex projects (e.g. anything more involved than a memo in Word or an email.)

It might be worth seeing if 48 pages would be better number.

Normally you would supply a PDF (possibly PDF/X-4), as separate pages, and with "Use Document Bleed Settings" ticked and your printer advising wether they wanted crop marks or not.

Alternativley, f your printer has the current version of InDesign you might consider packaging (File > Package) the file and sending them that.

OP is "sending" to an in-house printer - not to a "printing house".

Thank you for that - I am using a SHARP MX 3070N photocopier/printer for this full-colour job and to date this has functioned perfectly.  I just can't seem to get it to download once now.  I am printing 10 copies at a time and it is very frustrating as it is so time-consuming.

See James' first answer...

Printing from PDF has always been better than printing direct from InDesign.

I suppose maybe you are imposing the booklet in InDesign? It would help to know how you are actually making the booklet.

There are scripts for inDesign to impose simple booklets rather than using Print Booklet, and Acrobat has booklet imposition functions built in.
