    Background Master Not Showing In PDF


      I have a 90 page ebook I've design in InDesign. I'm self taught and new(ish) to InDesign, so please bear with me.


      My client needs the book for print and as an Interactive PDF. So, I've designed the file for print and am converting it to RGB when exporting it for web.


      Regardless of if I export the file for print or web, RGB or CMYK almost all of the pages are missing the background. The strange this is I'm using Masters for the background and some pages show up properly while most don't even though the same Master is applied.The Master has a transparency (opacity) on it, but I've also tried removing this and exporting the file without it and still have the same problem.


      Any help with this is MUCH appreciated.


      Here you will see how Page 1 is exporting properly with a background texture and opacity overlay:

      Here you will see how Page 2 is exporting with no background image even though the very same Master is applied to it.
