Text characters (Helvetica neue - apostrophes ' ) disappear when printed. Blank spaces where the apostraphe should be. The text is in imported/placed illustrator files.
Other files with the same format show the apostraphe. The illustrator artwork has 4 layers with the text on its own layer. CS4.
A Google search produced a thread from this forum for InDesign CS4 describing the same problem. If you read through the thread, it appears that you need to update InDesign to 6.0.4.
Thanks, I'm using InDesign 6.0.6. It wasn't only PDF/X, the actual InDesign pages show a blank space where the apostrophes are as well. I noticed the missing characters when I printed with a desktop printer.
Did you, since you are on a Mac, use the system version of Helvetica Neue? The system version has been (uh) "improved" by Apple, with some weird incompabilities as a result.
Much as I hate to say it, if you don't have an alternative font, maybe -- this one time -- tou might want to outline your text in Illustrator. Take care to keep a copy with editable text.
