Never mind, I can't seem to reproduce the problem with another document. It must be a glitch in the particular document I was having issues with. I will keep you posted if I this issue reappears.
By default, drop shadows are set to multiply. Perhaps you didn't change it in that file.
Hi! Thanks! We're seeing this same problem. Every time we down save an ID 2015 to IDML to open in ID 2014, we get these crazy drop shadows. Peter are you saying that in ID 2015 by default when you place art, ID 2015 automatically sets the frame with a drop shadow set to multiply? How exactly do we remove this?
Why are you saving them down?
CC gives you CS6, CC, CC2014 and CC2015. Work in the appropriate versions.
IDML is not a perfect solution.
So then how do you suggest we open a file created in 2015, in 2014? We have internally created plugins which are not currently supported in 2015. So users who forget, and create in 2015 need to either down save or do something to open in 2014. Thoughts?
As long as you’re online, you should get an option to have Adobe actually do the conversion. Still possible that you’ll have issues.
When file formats change, there’s little that can be done to assure 100% translations.
I wish I had something better for you, but the answer is to be more careful or not install new versions unless they contain compelling features. I’d also get in touch the plugin developers, but I feel for them, too. Dropping support for the extension manager with little notice has left many of them scrambling.
it seems I found solution for this issue.
The problem shows up when general settings for blending mode is changed - what I mean is the setting when you click to the pasteboard around the document. When it is "Normal", conversion goes well, but when it is changed, it takes effect which will be there, no matter which one.
So check your general effects before export and everything will be fine.
