Answers / Create PDF
I use InDesign 5.5 to craft presentations. I would like to provide a "contact sheet" of the slides to my audience, containing 4 or 6 slides per page. I cannot figure out how to either (1) export it from InDesign with multiple slides per page; or (2) create a contact sheet from a PDF file in Acrobat. If clumsy MS PowerPoint is capable of this very simple task, surely Adobe products are as well. Thanks!

Hi,answer is here, it requires Adobe Bridge: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/creatives...;-)
Thank you! I was hoping to be able to create the contact sheet directly from a multi-page PDF, but the Bridge command only used the first page. I extracted all the pages from the PDF into a separate folder, then used the Bridge command and it worked like a charm. Seems like an extra step, but Bridge makes the output so customizable it is worth it. Thanks for the tip!

You are welcome!
So, you can directly export PDFs or JPEGs into a folder from InDesign:

If your photo editor or viewer can create a contact sheet, you can always print to the Adobe PDF printer. Some photo editors/viewers provide an "Export to PDF" or "Save as PDF" option.
