comment Printing a 11x17 booklet
Before anyone can give you a useful answer, you'll have to make the question clear. Is the page size of the finished booklet 8.5x11 (11x17 folded once) or actually 11x17? Is the "it" that prints "as a sideways portrait" the page, or the image? What size are your InDesign pages? A screen shot would be helpful, too.

comment Save a vector shape with transparency with a clean outline in Photoshop?
This is the correct answer, but it would be more helpful to more people going forward if you include the explanation of why PNG-8 creates the problem and why PNG-24 handles it.

comment Moto 360 resolution and density
This question appears to be off-topic because it is asking for a specification for an unreleased product. That's appropriate for a tech rumors site. It's not graphic design.

comment How do you scale a vector image to equal a measurement in inches, in illustrator CS3?
@Julie Select all the stroked paths and use Object > Expand Appearance to turn the strokes into shapes. Then increase the size. I suspect you would need to do this anyway. As joojaa says, NC equipment will follow the path and ignore the width of the stroke unless strokes are converted to shapes.

comment “Inverted” corners in Rectangle
Great question! This is one of those things that's so nicely hidden, and so awesomely geeky, it can completely baffle anyone.

comment Photoshop CC Generate Ignores “Layer Mask Hide Effects” option
The Smart Object approach works well on your test file. Just remember to create the Smart Object, duplicate it, then apply the masks.
