Normalize PDF output

It's a pretty simple question and I used to know the answer.

I have my output set to keep the files together and not output single pages. Where do I change this? I happen to need to break apart a file because the client is a mess and having single pages would help.
Speed doesn't kill, rapidly becoming stationary is the problem

I'd rather have stories told than be telling stories of what I could have done.

It's more like grip, grip, grip, noise, then spin and 2 feet in and feel shame.

EVO can do that? I ask because CONNECT cannot.

Wait, connect will not normalize and export single pages? When this was installed and I told them I didn't want single pages they looked at me like I was insane. They told me that that's not how Kodak does it but that's how I've been doing it since the install.

You can also just drag the refined pages out of the Pages section to your desktop.

No, CONNECT will only create single pages after normalizing. It will NOT create a multipage PDF after normalizing. Well it will if you manually publish a PDF of the normalized files but there is nowhere in the normalizer that will allow it to output a multipage pdf.

Hmm, interesting. I am running EVO and it's quite an old version so maybe they removed the option. Since in EVO I have to manually go into preps like olden days and populate it myself. It doesn't have an integrated imposition feature. Well, I was told there is some way to set up a workflow that will pick a impo and populate it but in my testing, it's never worked the way we needed it to.
