Answer
Hi Howard,

Thank you for your question.

Sorry for any delay - I only received a notification today!

The 145 Indesign documents - are they all seperate documents or is it one document with 145 pages?

If its a 145 page indesign document then just go to Export or Ctrl+E and choose to save it as a pdf. Here's a step by step - http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-PDF-from-InDesign

If you have 145 different indesign documents that you want to make into one multi-page pdf - then you will need to combine the indesign documents and then follow the instructions to export to pdf as seen above.

To combine indesign documents please see -
