View Full Version : Importing Spread PDF oddity

Hello all,

I have got another one. This time when importing a spread pdf into a job. It explains best when you look at the attached pdf. Preps automatically adds "ghost" pages when the pdf has a different page numbering (like 1 (1of2), 3(2of2).
Last week i got a wedding card pdf, there were 5 spread pages, i got 9 pages in my job.. I never experienced this in previous versions, so maybe this could be an item when there will be a preps update?

In preferences-general, try turning of "Add pad pages for missing pages."

Thank you, Jamie.
Turned the option off in preferences, the pdf imported ok.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU JAMIE! I have had this issue for years from Quark spreads, and I just figured I had to live with it and manually delete extra "ghost" pages. BTW, it's not just PDF spreads, but also Postscript spreads. But now, all should be better. :)
