Printing InDesign Booklets as PDFs

From Help Wiki

If you don't have access to InDesign from where you will print it may be easier to first convert your InDesign document to a High Quality PDF. This will generate a layout spread (numbered pages are in sequential order) which can be converted to a printer spread using the Adobe Reader Booklet feature.
