    IDML Gradient Feather bug?


      I recently produced artwork for a leaflet with a gradient feather applied to the top right hand corner of the image to help legibility of the logo.

      When I packaged it all for the printer, the high res PDF was fine. But when I open the IDML file  the image has been changed completely, almost as if the the lighter corner had been applied overall the whole image washing it out completely. Exporting from the IDML to PDF produces the same washed out result so it's not 'screen draw' problem. I have never seen this before and wonder if it's a bug relating to applied effects when converting to IDML.

      The printer produced the job and it was rejected by the client so it will have to be reprinted so there's a cost implication as well.


      Any ideas as to why this would happen?
