13X11 > 10X8 Scale Factor

I’m just converting a 13×11 book to a 10×8 book.

If anyone else needs it – scaling 74% seems to do it perfectly. :) But you have to do it per spread in InDesign… :/

Has anyone found a more efficient way to do this?  Like automatically, using a script?  Also, are there any downsides to scaling?  What I’m thinking is that 13×10 = 1:1.3 and 10×8= 1:1.25.  So the top and/or bottom would have to get truncated by a few percent.  I’m still learning InDesign so I’m not sure yet how to accomplish this.

Haven’t found a more efficient way of doing it so far. Group all your items and use the % scale factor to retain the setup of all picture/ text frames when scaling down to 74% then just tweak each page spread.
