Have been asked to resize a 14pg "pdf"
I was under the impression it was going to be printed at 8.5x11.... now its going to be 8.5x5.5
I have the document in illustrator on multiple artboards in a single .ai/.pdf.
Any trick to quickly resizing 14 artboards+Images/Copy?
So it's going from spreads to individual pages?
How can your design survive beeing "quickly" resized to half the width? looks like you'll have to redo the all thing..
there was a plugin,
let me find it for you
Stop designing 14pg brochures in Illustrator to start.
Stop designing 14 page brochures.
Stick to 12 and 16 pages.
why does no one use the right software for anything
whaaaat, didn't even catch that it was in illustrator,
save every frame as pdf, import into indesign,
start working for real
I still do books in Illustrator and I regret it all the time. I just don't get InDesign!
- it's the simplest of all the apps, toomonospaced
- can't think of anything easier or more elegant for a book than to lay it out in IDmonospaced
- I'm in NYC over New Years. Wanna ring in 2013 teaching me InDesign? I can('t) pay you lots of money!orrinward2

Fair play, I can hardly use Illustrator for what it is intended for... why on EARTH would someone choose to use it for a multipage booklet?!
14 page brochure. Fucking LOL.
Just tell them to fold it in half.
Ok... I appreciate the help. I have been doing flash/uix/motion/branding for years. I know I need to "know InDesign" I'm just really hating every second I spend in that app. I've tried every new version and I just never spend the time unlearning my photoshop and illustrator "way to do things"
This is the first print piece I have done in years that was more complicated than a front/back flyer or business card. I just don't feel justified in spending the time to learn InDesign. It's not hard, its just enough different from illustrator that it pisses me off in really benign ways.
Any way to output a mulipage PDF to a series of jpegs?
It's been 2 weeks! You haven't got that proof out yet? :D
the brochure was printed for the opening weeks ago. gallery owner now wants to be able to "use it for web" so im waiting to get back to my mac and see what illy lets me do with export options..
wait... breathe deeply before you do this...
Any client or boss who:
1. wants a 14 page brochure
2. wants you to resize it that much
is probably in need of a deep breathing excercise and a certain amount of calm patience before you actually do anything, as the size or page count may suddenly change again! Be careful here...
