button drop shadow transparency

Jun 19, 2012 8:45 PM

I am trying to create a button that has an adjacent shape that has an InDesign drop shadow that overlays the button. It appears that this transparency is not supported as the shadow is not visible on the iPad. I have also tried to create an inner shadow in the button and that isn't working either.


Can you provide a workaround to achieve this? I imagine I can build the shadow into the button in Photoshop but I'd prefer to not build this element in Photoshop if I can avoid it.

    @Josh – maybe a rendering problem with the folio. What kind of folio do you create? PNG, JPEG or PDF?
    If PNG or JPEG try the PDF option to see if the rendering goes well.


    Could you provide some more screen grabs of the problem?


    1. Objects in InDesign with "View/Extras/Show Frame Edges" enabled

    2. Same with "View/Overprint Preview" enabled and View set to "Preview" (toggle "w")

    3. Same with viewing in Adobe Content Viewer (on the PC)

    4. Same with viewing folio on the iPad
