setting pages up for press

Hi guys, this probably has a quick and easy answer but that answer has eluded me for quite some time. I'm currently working on a 16 page print job (4 11x17s front and back). Is there an option in indesign that helps with the proper page flow? "Getting page 2 to default to the actual print page 2 "and not the next page. I've searched around and cant find the answer. I suppose i cant find that answer b/c i'm having problems explaining the issue. Any help is appreciated. I realize that this post may not make sense either. I'll leave this as is and post a follow up should it be needed.

thanks,
edy

You're talking about imposition. There isn't any plug-in yet that I'm aware of for InDesign that does this, but I'm sure it won't be long. Quark has plug-ins that do this.

Here's something you can do:
Fold a little paper dummy, number it and then just Section each page in your InDesign document. Or, just number then and lock the page numbers.

16 pages isn't very large so you can move those to get them into 'printer spreads' fairly easily.

I see there is a new plug-in available called Imposer Pro. More info at:

Actually, the PageMaker Plugin pack from Adobe ($49US) contains the SE version of ALAP's InBooklet. This feature is built into InDesignCS2. The InBooklet SE does saddle stitching and a few other setups. It also gives you the choice of changing the current document or creating a new, imposed document, while leaving your original (with reader spreads) untouched. Sorry if this comes too late...I just found this board...it's great!
