In a document where I have, say, 20 business cards front and back, and I have to export them as individual PDFs. That's 40 exports! I know that in acrobat I can extract the pages afterward, but I was wondering if there is a script or something that can do that straight out of InDesign?

    I have seen the InDesign Page Exporter Utility Script by RR Donnelly mentioned on InDesign Secrets. I haven't personally tested the script.- – AndrewH May 4 '16 at 20:47

    Export your PDF, open it in Acrobat Pro and then go Tools > Organise Pages and use the Split function to split the document by 2 pages. It'll take you about two minutes. – Alex May 4 '16 at 21:49

    Are these business cards the same design with different details on? If so, there's better ways to do that, without duplicating the design for each card. – Cai May 4 '16 at 21:50

I recently started using the InDesign Page Exporter Utility Script and i confirm this does what you need. I just tried this on one of my documents and yes, you have the option to export each page as a separate PDF.
