I made up the book. At the last moment, before sending the layout to print, the customer asked for a slight resize of the book. If I resize the page, then all content stays in place. I have to sit and manually edit the content throughout the layout. Is there a way to resize the page along with all the content?

Thanks for the screenshot!

In that case I guess there is no automated process that would work very well.

 

However, you could try the (then in CC 2019) new feature "Adjust Layout" on a duplicate of your document.

 

But you have to experiment with all the options you have there:

Hi Александр5C3F,

this is a very peculiar problem. Not easy to answer.

It highly depends on the setup of your document and the exact version of InDesign you have.

 

What is your page size now?

What is the desired page size?

 

Could the new page size be gained if you scale a page proportionally?

Then you could export all pages to PDF/X-4 with no image downsampling, do a new document with the new page size and then place the PDF/X-4 page by page to the new document. There is a script for this that can automate the process. But if that works is unclear because you did not tell the exact version of your InDesign. Also the operating system is of interest.

Hi Uwe,

I have 14.0 version (CC 2019).

Now the size is 245x325 mm. I need a size 245x340 mm. The quality of the layout does not change from resizing (I checked it in Photoshop). The layout still looks harmonious.

I would be extremely grateful if you tell me how you can automate the increase of the page with content without losing quality.

Thank!

Hm. The new size is not proportionally scaled to the old size.

So I guess, that an automated process with placed PDFs in a new document is not very likey to work.

 

Can you show screenshots of a typical spread with frame edges showing, guides showing and hidden characters showing?

Do images or other elements run into bleed?

I can suggest a possible work-around. Create a new, one page (facing pages) InDesign file at at the desired final size and use this improved MultiPageImporter.jsx script to place and position the original InDesign file into the new InDesign file using the settings shown in the screen shot. (the script works equally well with PDFs and InDesign files) Windows> Utilities> Scripts> Select the script and choose run script from the fly-out menu. This script will allow you to re-size the placed InDesign file. Export to a new PDF. Alternately, you can scale a PDF to a specified size in Acrobat using a preflight fixup.

If you decide to adjust the positioning for each page to avoid distorting the design, the tool Object> Transform again could save some time.

I can also recommend a script from Id-Extras called QuickResize. Here's a link:
