Anybody with an answer please ? I see the status of the conversation has changed, however, I have received no answer whatsoever...
No one has been experiencing anything similar ? I'd really appreciate getting a feedback from anybody else and perhaps things to look into to find workarounds...
Hi, I am very surprised to have received 0 answers. I even turned to Adobe Support who told me this case was passed on to engineers, however, no one is replying even to my emails and I am really starting to wonder if Adobe is really willing to look into this issue of mine...
At this point, any kind of feedback would be greatly appreciated.
A disappointed Adobe customer.
So, is it the orange line you are losing? Why do you care about image fragments (it might have decided, for example, that different resolutions could be used for different parts). Maybe sharing the original and optimized file on Document Cloud or another sharing site would give people something to work with.
If it is actually in Adobe's systems, a fix would be months away, I expect. And you never seem to hear anything one way or another.
Hi, thanks for your reply.
Well, it's not just this document here, I'd need to find something lightweight that I can share with you. Issue seems to affect files that contain transparency, gradients, shading and spot colours. It is not only linked to this file but to several that fit the transparency effects I have just mentioned.
Prior to updating Acrobat, all of these used to turn out fine after optimization, however, after migrating to the newer version, optimizing files has become somewhat unpredictable, and since I work with heavy files, it is an important part of my workflow for sharing info.
Now, bits of pictures disappear, pictures are puzzled into lots of little pieces, graphics go missing... those are only some of the mild issues I am encountering.
Let me see if I can upload something somewhere... Here is a document that suffers from the issue. Never mind the graphics. This is the uncompressed PDF file. Now, when you compress it in Acrobat to make it lightweight and the option to "bring fragments together" is checked, graphics disappear, fragmented and even colour gradients are removed.
And here is an example of the file, optimized, it is easy to see what is wrong. Though I have to say what happens to the file seems to even be random itself:
Hope that helps, and thanks again for checking...
I have other files with the same issue.
to reply on why I care so much about image fragments, I sometimes have to make quick edits to files, and it is easier to do so in the PDF rather than go back to Illustrator and then create a new PDF file (there are sometimes minor quick fixes to be done)
I often need to quickly replace a picture here and there.
An update came out, which I performed and then tried again to compress a PDF, to no avail. Issue is still very much present.
