I'd like to save my doc as a PDF but InDesign doesnt' give me the option. It is grayed out
I think you might enjoy this:
Nice video, nothing new to me and unfortunattely nothing new about print/export book as spreads.
the actual solution to this problem is here: http://indesignsecrets.com/make-it-look-like-a-book-in-the-acrobat-pdf.php
The trick is to export from InDesign as single pages, then let Acrobat handle the two-page display.
A bit tricky indeed but definitely the way to go! Thanks ///
You can actually do this directly from Id now using the Export PDF panel:
Hello. There is no "trick", when you select File > Export choose Format "Adobe PDF (Print)", click Save, then in the next dialogue box choose the Spreads radio box in the Pages area.
Personally, I think forcing readers to scroll both up/down and left/right to view your document is a big turn-off. I often set the initial view as two-up, but I would never make it impossible for a reader to change that.
Document wise yes, but try it from a INDESIGN BOOK! With documents ending with a left page, en the following document starting with a right page.
Unfortunately is does not work that way! Unless you are working with a different version of InDesign....
