XMF waiting for pages

I have a file that everything looks good page prep went good, looks like everything is fine
but it says it's waiting for pages and won't output, I'm just trying to impose a 68 page into a pdf.
I added plates to see if the outputting the pdf was the problem but it's waiting for pages for the plates too.

I think I've seen this before but can't figure out what it is

fyi: I did this same book yesterday at 8.5x11 but today the book is 5.5x8.5 (info not provided yesterday)!!!
I reduced in indy and output a new pdf

XMF doesn't tell you that, It's always my fault when it doesn't work :laugh:

I've Added a Blank page too, but forgot to "activate" it in the impo and took me quite a while to figure out why the hell it wouldn't process!!!  :banghead:

p.s. It really should auto-activate pages added to the Section, why else would I be adding them??
