I was wondering if someone can help me with this problem


I have a document that I am producing, and on one page the font apppears thicker than on other pages.


I have tried changing the font, but the problem remains.


This problem carries through when I export to PDF, but when I print a physical copy, this problem disappears.


Can anyone help me with this?


Below please see a screen cap of the problem.


I am using InDesign for Windows, CS5.5 Version 7.5

    Is there transparency on the page?


    This looks like the common "emboldening" effect when there is transparency on a page. It shows on screen and in low res preints, but not, I think, in press output.
