ID CS 5.5. Version 7.5.3
I am applying a simple Master template to a 28 page document.
If I export to pdf using the pre-defined format for smallest file size or PDF/X-4 the export is correct:
If I export using the pre-defined PDF/X-1a or X3 I get some pages like this (Logo and Page-No. block on both sides):
This only happens on pages 8-9, 16-17, 22-23 out of 28 pages.
I have tried exporting to idml and reopening.
I have removed the master from all pages, checked for spurious elements and then re-assigned the master.
Drunk a lot of coffee!
No pictures go over the gutter.
I need the finished PDF to be in PDF/X-1a.
1.) Why does InDesign hate me?
2.) Can someone please suggest a cure?
Thanks for your time and consideration.
Ok, I used individual bars as you suggested and that solved 75% of the problem. Some elements were still appearing (apparently at random).
I decided to simply recreate the problematic Master and reassign it. Now everything looks great.
For those of you with a similar problem: I placed the bars 0,001 mm to the left and right of the gutter and that worked..... at last!!
Thanks to both of you for your help and advice.
Oh, and my Graphic Designer? I decided to pardon him .... (for the moment) :-)
