Simple-but-frustrating problem: When I place a pdf (generated by Acrobat X, vers.10.1.0) in InDesign CS4 (vers.6.0.6), my text boxes do not appear. Font is embedded and confirmed as activated (FontExplorer X Pro, vers.3.1). System = Leopard, 10.5.8.
Text boxes appear when printed, ported to iPad, in Bridge preview, and Finder preview.
update: Seems that any edit I make in Acrobat to a pdf -- whether adding text (via text box or typewriter) or symbols such as lines, arrows, etc. -- does not carry over to placed version. Why?
Are you talking about the text box tool in the commenting tools? The typeweriter is also a commenting tool, and ID does not import the comments.
