I work for a magazine publication. Since using Indesign CC I have had the following problem happening regularly:
work disappears! I can select all and see where it is meant to be, and when I click 'fit to frame' the photos come back, but the text goes into a miniscule text box in the cetre of by two page spread. It is taking up valuable time and driving me crazy!! Can anyone help? Have anyone got this problem as well?
Thanks @Laubender So don't place the links via apple D?
It is a huge doc that has styles etc preset, that i would have to redo, and unfortunatly we are on deadline. Hoping there is a solution or maybe a preset that is wrongly set up that can be changed.
@bayfisher1 – if my assumption is right, you need a new spread to "Paste in Place". Either in the same document or a new document.
Forget the old spread. The problem lies in the old spread or page. You cannot correct that. Only work around the problem.
I have deleted that particular spread, as it is only happening on certain spreads. I have created a new spread and copied and pasted the links in. I will let you know if this works. Thanks for your help!
@bayfisher1 – don't get me wrong.
I suggested to copy all objects on the faulty spread (even if they are so tiny you cannot see them) by:
1. "Select All", "Copy"
2. Go to a different spread or add one to your document
3. "Paste in Place"
All my updates are up to date so I presume this is in the system. I will - however - disconnect and reconnect after this big print job and it may pick up some updates that have been missed. Thanks for taking the time to answer.
