When exporting to PDF, I have a 6-page document that has missing objects from the master.
Here's the document with the content removed:
The first and last pages were constructed correctly. All pages in between are screwed up. Any ideas?
Possibly a bug, but I would say unlikely. Something that egregious would have shown up in beta. Try removing the image, then place them again in new frames, maybe even rebuild the master page in a new doc and move the pages into it.
This problem was solved by removing raster artwork from the master pages.
As Peter said, that removed the symptom.
Do you still have the original file somewhere? I found ID often messes up stuff on master pages that span two pages -- even a mere 0.1mm overlap of an object onto the other page in a spread is known to cause problems, both ways: sometimes objects are not included on the page where they should be, and sometimes objects from "the other page" appear on the one you are seeing.
Most annoying, as it happens on output to PDF only. The previews are usually correct.
Good thought. This is actually more correct. While removing the raster images fixed the problem, I tried moving the whole line of them at the bottom within the horizontal boundaries of the page, and that also fixed the problem.
Thanks for your help, everyone. And if someone from the Adobe team is reading this -- might be nice to have an update where this is fixed!
@Jongware – I have a case with InDesign CS5.5 7.5.3 on Mac OS X 10.6.8 where master pages based on each other lead to false representation of page objects.
Not only in pdf export, but also on the actual InDesign pages. Made an IDML from it, opened that in InDesign CS4 and the error was gone.
This problem is documented at the German-Swiss forum "HilfDirSelbst" at:
Some screen grabs together with the IDML are attached there.
After opening the IDML from InDesign CS4 with the error gone, I exported another IDML from CS4, opened that in InDesign CS5.5 7.5.3 and the error was present.
To detect the error look at pages 1* and 4 of the mentioned screen grabs.
//EDIT: *the screen grab of the pages palette of InDesign CS5.5 shows the error on page 4 only. The error is present outside of page 1 as well, but cannot show on the screen grab.
