i am applying a drop shadow to a text frame,and its getting applied to other text frames on the spread,and also i can see a slight colour change to my images as well.
what is happening?
Drop shadows are transparency effects, so the preview redraws the spread showing the transparency flattening. There is a well-known "emboldening" effect for text on screen when transparency is used, and it can show onscreen in your PDF and low-res prints, too, but is usually not a problem with press output. Color shifting in the images probably means your transparency blend space is out of synch with the images.
wow that seems like a scientific reply,thats like a hidden indesign render.anyhow thank you for that.
