pdf page information incorrect in export from Book


Recommended Posts

When I export a book file to pdf everything is fine except the page information. It restarts the page numbering for each chapter in the information. (The actual page numbers are fine.)

I'm not sure what you mean by that. Can you provide a screenshot that illustrates the problem?

The page information says this is page 34 bit it's actually page 104.

The first page of this file in the book is shown in the page information as page 1 even though it is page 71. It restarts the numbering in the page information at page 1 for every file on the book.

I'm wondering if I have missed a checkbox somewhere. The  page numbering itself is fine.

Thanks, but I'm still a bit confused. 

What are you using to view the file that's showing that information? 

What do you mean "every file on the book"? 

You should end up with one output PDF file, after exporting using the Books panel. It sounds like maybe you're exporting the individual files using File > Export, instead, and ending you with individual PDF files?

One complete file using the "all chapters as pages" option in the export.

The only problem with it is the page information which could be very confusing to a printer. There would be multiple page 1s in the book file according to the page information. The only solution I can see is to omit the page information altogether.

By "every file in the book" I mean every file which is included in the book file. The point of the Book is to amalgamate all the files or chapters. It works fine for everything except outputting the page information in a complete Book pdf export.

I don't understand this. I am opening the pdf in Adobe Acrobat Reader. Pdfs for sending to printers are supposed to include page information.

That's Page Information as specified in the Export Settings? If so, thanks. I don't think I've used that option. I'll take a look to see if I get the same.

I agree that would be confusing, and I see the same thing as you. I don't think that there are any workarounds other than disabling "Include page information" option in the Export settings.

This is almost certainly a bug, which the Serif staff should be able to confirm when they get to this topic.

Are they fixing bugs these days?

Some get fixed; some don't. It may depend on the complexity of the fix and whether/how it intersects with other areas of the applications.

Not all print establishments require, or even desire, page info such as title and page numbers in the trim section. 

Such information is not used in any imposition software I know of. Imposition simply imposes from the first page of a pdf until the last page without regard to such information. 

Best to communicate with whatever print service directly as to what is required.
