Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Preflighting book documents, part of Creating Long Documents with InDesign.
When you're working with book documents, you can extend the scope of InDesign's…Live Preflight feature from just the current document to all documents in the…book or any subset of those documents.…InDesign can be constantly checking all the documents and display their…preflight status in the panel.…So to preflight a book, you just go to the panel menu and choose Preflight Book.…You can pick the whole book or if you had selected documents, you could pick them.…I don't have any document selected right now, so the choice is grayed out and I…have the entire book.…
Next is the Preflight Profile.…You can select from the Preflight Profiles available to you in InDesign ones…you've created or loaded.…Here I have a LongDocuments profile. Or you can use Document's Embedded Profiles.…But unfortunately, you can't specify an alternative profile for documents that…have not embedded if you use this option.…It's going to fall back on the basic Preflight Profile, which isn't really very useful.…Nor are Preflight Profiles something you can synchronize with the book panel.…
