Default Exporting Individual Pages in InDesign


We are a magazine publication using Adobe InDesign CS3 and we would like to know if we can export single pages from a multi-page layout with each page automatically saving as the correct page number. For example if I have two separate Indesign files; the first do***ent is pages 5-10 and the second 11-15. When I export these do***ents can they automatically be saved as individual pages with the correct page number for the files name (ie: Page 5.pdf, Page 6.pdf, Page 7.pdf, etc)?

Only via a script.

This script exports single page pdfs with the page number as a prefix, so if you've set your first doc's section numbering to start at 5 the pdf's will be titled starting at 5. The script asks for a PDF presetómake sure you set your preset's View PDF After Export option to unchecked or the PDFs will open as they are made.

AppleScript. Open the zip archive and copy the script to:

Applications/Adobe InDesign CS3/Scripts/Scripts Panel/

and it should show in your Scripts panel

Once I put the script file in the InDesign script folder, how do I save my do***ent so that it creates separate pdf pages?

Open your do***ent and double-click the script in the Script panel to run it. You'll get dialogs to choose a destination folder and then a PDF export preset. Click ok and the PDFs will be saved into your chosen destination folder. A 5 page do***ent will export 5 pdfs.

I've unchecked the View PDF After Export option in the Quebecor preset and tried to run the script within InDesign, but get the following error:

Error Number: 30477
Error String: Adobe InDesign CS3 got an error: Invalid value for parameter 'using' or event 'export'. Expected PDF export preset, but received nothing.

What should we do?

That might happen if you clicked OK without choosing a preset from the listóclicking one of the radio buttons. Does it work if you choose one of the default presets?
