    "Drop shadow" on placed PDF not working as on pasted object

      Hi there,

       

      instead of copy/pasting graphics from AI into my InDesign document, I exported the graphic(s) from AI as PDF, and placed it into InDesign. However, the Drop Shadow effect seems to be applied to all items in the PDF, as before it only was applied to the border of the graphic. I checked the "Knockout Group" option, as this seemed to eliminate the shading within the graphic, but by further looking at it, it only seemed to have reduced it.

       

      Attached an example:

      Any idea how that "internal" shading can be eliminated?

       

      Thanks a lot for any tips!
