I tried both of them like you recommended. But still did not come. I don,t see the object from indesign page into the pdf equivalent.
And you know what is strange?
I made a print out of that file few hours ago. It was made from the same original Indesign file. But after I made some proofreading and changed a comma inside a text, it has all started to act crazy.
I got the solution by making a special masterpage. I applied that masterpage to the problem place, and it turned out ok. That was my solution. But still not satisfied to see something in InDesign and something MISSING in PDF...
It,s just strange.
A few questions:
What version of InDesign are you using? What operating system?
What program are you viewing the PDF in?
Are you using any transparency? (Choose Window > Output > Transparency Preview to preview)
@Ionut – can you provide the file on a webserver for downloading? I think we do have to test it live…
Oh, and did you try to print a PostScript file and distill a PDF out of it? (Just for testing.)
Or, did you try to export to PDF/X-1a, just to see if flattening transparencies makes a difference?
In addition to the questions Steve asked, is the object visible on screen in Preview mode?
You're right. I have missed to mention the most important details.
I use CS5. Premium Design.
My system is iMac. One year old.
Next Q. I have no transparency on that page. And as mentioned, the exactly same object (a set of 5 letters + one more graphic made of another 2 letters I turned into an outline.), exactly the same object show up perfectly on the other pages, but on ONE page, it is just hiding away when I export. Transparency path. I did not quite got that one. Don't forget I am not an expert... but a big fan of ID.
The first pic as you see, is from ID before I export to PDF
and the last image is the crazy pdf file, I am getting.
If the adobe guys need my file for investigation, I can send it to them somehow.
But then again, I got a compromise solution by putting the "missing" object on a separate masterpage.
@ionuts – what *exact* version of InDesign do you use? InDesign CS5 v7.0.4 should be the latest, I think. If you use a dot-version below, say v7.0.0, it is more likely that a (software) bug has bitten you…
One more workaround to try:
did you export page 6 as single page?
my version is 7.0.4 as you say
exported just the problem page. it stays the same problem...
I think I am bitten by the bug.
Try making a new file the same size. Copy and paste all objects from that page into a page in the new file. Does it export correctly from there? If so, make a COPY of the old file, delete the problem page, then use the Move Pages command from the Pages Panel menu to move the rest of the pages into the new file.
Still I don't feel going all that long path.
I found a temporary solution as I said, but what I wanted to make clear is wether there is or isn't a bug.
And it is a bug right there: there is no logical explain to the fact that I can not see all the elements of my page in PDF as I do in Indesign. That's it.
As far as I know there is no bug that woudl do this, but there is awyas the possibility that the document is damaged. Moving objects would help clear that up.
Ionuts: This is definitely not normal. Could you Package your file with Links, zip it up, and email it to me (or post/email a link)? You can find my email address by clicking on my icon to the left. I'd like to see what I can conclude about your file. Thanks.
