      Hello guys!

      I have a little problem with the ID. I want to change the opacity of an object in a certain page, but, when I do that it effects all the objects on the spread, and makes its color look darker. I tried to change the opacity from the options above, and also from the effect, but it still effects everything on the spread.

      I will be grateful for a little help.

          Make sure the transparency blend space is RGB if it isn't for printing.

            You should be able to simply select all of the items on the page and change the opacity to the value you desire.

              What version of InDesign? What system?


              Can you post a screenshot of the Layers panel with the object in question selected? The Effects panel with the object in question selected?

                As TestScreenName notes the document's transparency blend space affects the entire spread's preview when any transparent object is added to the spread. An RGB blend space would not force the preview to CMYK (with Overprint Preview off). If you use RGB as the blend space for print you have to export to PDF/X-4 or run the risk of getting 4-color blacks.
