Adobe InDesign/Maximum size PDF


My document size is W:5400mm, but the PDF is cropped from right side at W:5080mm. Managed to send to print in a rush. And now the banner looks a bit strange, you might say.

Do you know why?

Thanks for answering.

Regards Petter

Hi Petter,

Thank you for your question.

The size the PDF cropped the file to - 5080mm is exactly 200 inches and this is the limit that indesign can create pdfs to.
