Are you printing from a PDF?
No, not from a pdf. Printing right from InDesign.
Try exporting to PDF and printing from that. Use the InDesign Acrobat PDF Presets. Test High Quality Print and compare the quality of the printing with printing using PDF/X-4.
I used High Quality Print and changed standard to PDF/X-4 (it had been set to "none") It still doesn't work. I thought maybe I needed to change the opacity of the text frame in Effects but that didn't work. I also tried to print on another color printer and got the same result. I have been watching videos on Lynda.com hoping I will see what I am doing wrong but no go.
Are to doing this: File > Adobe PDF Presets > PDF /X-4 (from the drop-down menu)?
There shouldn't be a "none".
By the way, which version of InDesign and OS do you have?
My mistake, I was looking on the “export Adobe PDF” screen. I just tried
what you said below and still get the extra colored box though.
