    PDFs appear with fragmented images, metadata missing

      Can anyone help with this one?

       

      We use InDesign CS3 to create PDF 1.6's, directly from InDesign export. The metadata contained in the images on the layout normally are visible when you control click and select "show metadata" on the image in the resulting PDF with Acrobat's touch up object tools. Ocassionally, there is an unknown problem in the process where a given image will "fragment" -- when you click on it in the PDF, a frame surrounds only part of the image, and there's no "show metadata" choice to select. This is kiling us because we doconstruct those PDFs and put them into our long term archive, and the metadata is missing there!

       

      Any help would be appreicated!

       

      Thanks.
