    Color dropped from pasted objects

    JFG5 Level 1

      This is a new one for me. About a month ago, InDesign CS3 began dropping color from some objects (we build ads for a newspring tabloid), when the ads are copied from one doc to another. A black or yellow background will turn transparent in the new doc. This happens on both Intel iMacs (one 10.5.8, one 10.6.8). The doc is on a shared server (FAT) connected through an Apple timemachine router. I've used every possible combination of clipboard handling possible, no change. To make things worse, it's intermittent; sometimes color, mostly not. I've tried importing the patches from the original doc to the new before copy paste - doesn't help.

       

      Any suggestions would be appreciated.
