    Mystery overprint problem with InDesign


      We're a printer, and generally we can manage overprint issues, but this one has all of us completely stumped. (No judging the design, we have little control.)


      The blue line of text in the image below will not print. It's Process Blue, no funny spot colors, no effects, no shadows, and no font errors. It's one line in a text box full of other text that prints fine. It disappears in the Overprint Preview but gives no errors in a Acrobat Preflight. I've done the Object Search to find anything set to "Overprint" with no results, I've checked our black overprint settings, I've printed from pdfs, I've made outlines of the text, and I am completely out of ideas.


      The same color swatch printed fine on the front of the cards... and the background is rich black - we converted it from 100%K hoping it would help. It did not.


      Please help me before I throw my computer out the window.
