I'm trying to make a contact sheet for proofing purposes. So I'm trying to place multiple pages from a PDF file on one page of my InDesign document. I used to start drawing my box to place the first page, and use the up and right arrow keys to have it place multiple pages in a grid format equally spaced. This is not working for me anymore since the last update. I'm using InDesign 2021 (16.0.1) on a MacBook Pro running Big Sur. Is it something with Big Sur? Is a bug in the last InDesign update? Or was this functionality removed?
I have the same problem now and I'm using InDesign 2021 on a laptop, Windows 10. I guess is an issue with InDesign.
I don't think that the gridify function works with a multipage file, but only with multiple files.
It used to work with multi-page PDFs.
Just tested on my MacBook Pro (InDesign 16.1, OS 10.15.7) and found no problems.
Gridify does not work in my Macbook Pro (InDesign 16.1, OS 11.2.3) or my Windows 10 PC with muli-page PDFs. Works with multiple individual files though.
Did you select All pages as range in the import options when placing the PDF?
Yes, I did select All Pages.
From what I recall, didn't you used to have to select another file, like a JPG tocome along for the ride?
So you'd select 2 files.
I don't know about adding in a jpg, but the work around I found was to turn on "Create Static Captions". But then you either have to stop after placing everything up to the pages, or delete all the captions. Kinda dumb.
