#89. Exporting a Book for PDF or Print
An advantage to working with books rather than juggling multiple documents is that you can output all the documents in a book at once. This includes preflighting, collecting files for output, exporting to PDF, and printing. Before working with output options, be sure all the documents are available (not open by other users or missing), all the linked graphic files are available, and all the necessary fonts are active.
You can output selected documents in a book or all the documents. To work with all the documents, click in the blank area at the bottom of the Book palette to deselect all the documents. To select individual documents, Command-click (Mac OS) or Ctrl-click the document names; to select a continuous range of documents, use Shift-click. To access the output options for books, click the Book palette menu (Figure 89):
Figure 89. The Book palette menu provides options for outputting all the documents in the book with the same settings. These include preflighting, collecting files for output, exporting the book to PDF, and printing the book.
