OkiData / InDesign Mystery Solved

indesign cs3, okidata, booklet printing

After much experimenting on my Mysterious InDesign Okidata Issue for printing in booklet format. I finally solved the missing letters/numbers (printed out as crossed rectangles).

The problem only happens when I print only odd or even pages. So, if your printer can do duplex printing, you should be able to print straight from InDesign.

The solution:

  1. print booklet format to a PDF
  2. make a file with even pages only
  3. make another file with odd pages only
  4. print the Even file, flip the stack, print the Odd file
