Layer Problem - CS5.5 error

Jan 16, 2013 1:28 AM

Hello Everybody,

 

I have a document created in InDesign from CS5.5. I was trying to export the document with layer enable PDF. But in the output PDF, one of the layer is not coming. I am on Mac OS X 10.6.8. Below screenshots shows the exact problem of mines:

    What are the properties for that layer?

    Can you show us some screen shots of your export settings in ID? I suspect the problem is there someplace.

    I have to admit that looks OK to me. Here's two more things to try:

     

    Put an empty frame (printable) on the layer.

     

    Click the Tagged PDF box.

    I think the problem is that the only object(s) on that layer is non-printable. I don't think that it's possible to include that in the exported PDF file.

    I don't think that should be enough to keep the layer from being included, though, since it is a printable layer.

    It'e entirely possible you've found a bug (which realistically has no chance of being fixed), but I would say you should test it on another system in CS5.5 before you jump to that conclusion.

    Different physical computers, or virtual machines? Different computers reduces the risk of a common configuration problem and increases the likelihood of it being a bug.

    If you test only on the same computer there's a chance that some other software running on that computer is the cause of the problem. By using differnt computers, as you have, the possibility that it's an external conflict is reduced, but not eliminated entirely. I think the next test would be to try it in Safe Mode to be sure there is nothing but the OS and ID active, but the evidence seems to indicate a bug at this point, and that probably means you're out of luck unless you can find a workaround, like putting something marked as printable on the layer as well.
