Exporting a tri-fold brochure PDF, but the second page appears totally blank.

Nov 27, 2012 8:24 AM

Hey everyone,

 

The odd thing about this problem is that I am currently working on two brochures, and the exporting problem only appears to happening with one of them.  Below is a screen shot of the offending page.  It does contain a lot more pictures than my other brochure which is exporting easily.  Export settings are identical, BTW.

This is my first inDesign project, so I could be making a newbie mistake.  Thanks for your help!

Dan

    Do the images appear in ID when you switch to Preview mode?

    Are you able to share the file?

    I meant would you be willing to package the file and send it to me to check here rather than guessing what might be wrong. I'll send you an upload link.

    The problem is the watermark in the background, but I still need to figure out why...

    It seems to be the inner glow, though I don't know why that's a problem. On the other hand, I can't see that it actually is doing anything (nor is the outer glow) and it can be turned off without affecting the file, I think. I don't see that the drop shadows on the photos are going to be visible in the finished product, either, and I'd also remove those (the ones on the color bars are visible).

     

    There's also a very tiny unfilled rectangle at the top of the stack that's in the area of the young man's hair in the center photo. It should probably be deleted. You can expand the layer and select it there to remove it. I would also suggest using something other than the Times .dfont for the verse citation. .dfonts can be a problem when you go to print.

    I've been a designer of one sort or another since I was in high school in the 1960s (I spent 30+ years designing and custom fabricating jewelry before switching to graphic design inthe late 1990s). I've worked for a couple of printers, a newspaper, a magazine publisher, and taught InDesign and related tools at the college level for a short time, but now I'm a freelancer and volunteer here.
