I'm creating a bilingual brochure in InDesign with three layers; German, English and a picture layer. The German and English layers are composed solely of text boxes. When viewing the document in InDesign with all three layers visible, some text boxes are the two texts are on top of one another and others are just one of the text boxes and then the other text box from the other layer either invisible or jolted off the page. This means when I export it into a PDF, some parts of one of the language layers are not there. InDesign tells me that in these places I have overset text which I need to fix. I need the text to be imposed on one another, however, so that the two language versions look the same.
Could someone please tell me what I could do here? I'd highly appreciate any help.
If you show screenshots of your problem than some will understand your question fully.
I guess, there is text wrap applied on some of the text frames.
Turn off text wrap for all the text frames and there should be no problem to export to PDF with all the layers and objects stay put.
Thanks for the replies, GeorgeS and Laubender. It was indeed an issue with text wrap. Thanks ever so much for the help!
