Chapter 42. Preparing for Print > Packaging a Document for Print

Packaging a Document for Print

After you’ve confirmed that your document has all of the elements needed for print and you’ve checked the separations, packaging is the next stage of preparing a document for print. Packaging is the equivalent of QuarkXPress’s Collect for Output feature or PageMaker’s Prepare for Service Provider feature—it assembles a copy of the publication along with a copy of associated graphics and a copy of fonts used in the document. It also creates a report about the document, which you can give to a service provider or anyone else who might need a copy of your document.

You can package a document in one of two ways. If you have already performed a preflight, just click the Package button in the Preflight dialog box. Or, you can choose Package from the File menu (or press Command-Option-Shift-P/Ctrl-Alt-Shift-P). When you choose Package from the File Menu (or use the key commands) InDesign automatically preflights the document before packaging.
