Using Pdf Import

This separate feature allows pdfs to be imported into InDesign documents.

Each pdf page is placed on one InDesign page. When importing books, the inside bleed is removed. The result InDesign document is the same page size as the original pdf and can then be imposed using the Imposition Plug-in.

This provides a full pdf-to-pdf imposition workflow.

  1. Follow the same installation instructions with the ImportPdf.jsxbin file.
  2. Within InDesign, double-click ImportPdf.jsxbin from the Scripts palette (Window > Utilities or Automation > Scripts)
  3. Choose the pdf file you want to import
  4. Choose the document you want to import into and the page you want to start from

  5. Click OK
