I have a job that is currently in CS5. 22 files are in a book and make around 500 pages total. In CS5 I’ve always generated the pdf from the book’s flyout menu <Export Book to pdf…> and it’s worked perfectly. The created pdf is around 250 MB when completed.
I’d like to move the job to CS6 or CC, but trying to create a pdf using the <Export Book to pdf> command in the book is giving me quite a bit of trouble for this job in CS6 and CC.
I can create pdfs for each section manually, or I can create 2 pdfs if I split the book into 2 separate books, but if I try to create a pdf with the entire book InDesign becomes extremely slow and I end up having to force quit InDesign.
Kris, I experienced similar problems. I was using ID on Windows XP and CS5. All was beautiful.
Then I switched to Windows 7 and ID CS6. It became a nightmare.
ID CS6 is 32 bits and works very poorly on Windows 7. Of course there is no 64 bits version for CS6 because when it launched this version Adobe already knew that CC was coming.
So now, if you want productivity, speed and flawless ID you MUST switch to CC. Or buy a Mac
Shame on you Adobe!
