    Overprinting not respected when exporting pdf file

    Polylucky0 Level 1



      I am using Illustrator 9 and I have a problem with overprinting. The document is a map where the names of the cities (text) are in black (100% K) with the property "overprinting". This .ai document is then imported into Indesign CS3 from where a pddf file is exported. When I check the pdf file, the overprinting of the black is not present anymore for these texts blocks. What is wrong? What puzzles me the more is that I have other .ai maps in this document which work  perfectly. I have already tried to save my doc as a pdf or an .eps file but the problem is the same. Could it be a property of the document that disable the overprinting properties of the elements?


      Thanks a lot for supporting.
