Photos and text disappearing

Tags: #text_disappearing #photos_disappearing

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?

    @bayfisher1 – I've seen something like that with some files (not my own ones).


    The solution then:

     

    "Copy"/"Paste in Place" or better move the objects to a new spread or a new document.

    Have you installed the 9.1 patch?

    @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.

    @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"
