White rectangle in placed PDF

Feb 15, 2010 2:24 AM

Hi all,


When I view this PDF in Adobe Acrobat 9.3.0 (Windows), I see no problem. When I open the PDF in Photoshop, a white rectangle next to the white square at the bottom left corner appears. Anyone familiar with this phenomenon? Any idea what's wrong here (problem in the PDF itself or problem in Photoshop trying to to open the PDF correctly)? The problem does not only occur when you use the "Open" command, but also when you "Place" the PDF in Photoshop.


Thanks in advance.

    The only reason I can come up with is that there is a non-printing layer in the original file that Acrobat respects, but Photoshop does not because it is flattening the image.
