Help with indesign export to pdf
Please someone help..when I export my indesign file to a pdf, the file size shrinks from 8.25 x 8.125 fo 1.35 x 1.71 I have probably accidently clicked something somewhere. Does anyone know how I can fix this?
That's weird! Maybe try these?
- Double-check your document size, make sure it's in inches and not picas or something weird.
- Export to PDF again and choose "Press Quality" to reset the settings. Reselect anything you need (like Marks & Bleed).
I can't see offhand how it could export so small. I wish I could be more help! I could always export it for you if it comes to that :)
Is the page size within the pdf that size or is that the size the pdf is printing at?
There are no settings within InDesign to print a pdf to a smaller size. The only way I have heard of an InDesign file exporting to an actual different page size was due to the "master page" being a smaller page size.
If you could tell me what version ID are you using I can see what i can figure out for you.
@jimsz Thank you so much for your help, I was so frustrated I ended up reformatting the whole book again and that worked. I will never know what happened my book size was 8.125 x 8.25 and ended up exporting to a 1 something inch by 1 something inch in the pdf file size.
@carriecopa Thank yo so much for your help I have no idea what I did. I ended up reformatting the entire book which worked thank goodness!
