    Why are my PDFs not bringing in transparency effects applied to linked Indesign files?

    katharinej91298857

      I've created a poster in Indesign that has gradient and transparency effects.

       

      I then want to place this poster indesign file into another indesign presentation file.

       

      When I then export my presentation file as a PDF, the PDF will not replicate the posters' transparency effects (I end up with block colour instead).

       

      The only way around it I've found so far is to PDF the original poster them import the PDF into the Indesign presentation file but I wanted to avoid this as we end up with multiple versions and files to re-link...

       

      Is there a way to make this work by keeping the Indesign file linked within the Indesign file and have the transparency apply correctly upon PDF?
