  1. glow

    I had created a 1-up postcard for a proof in InDesign, and then placed it in a second InDesign document 3-up. When I exported it to PDF from the 3-up document using "Fiery Optimized" settings, the resulting PDF was missing all outer glow effects. Looking at the PDF, the outer glow on page one was on the "Sacramento Investor" logo on the lower left positions, and on page two, on that same logo, plus the text on top of all the property photos

    I packaged the doc and links, which are attached. As part of that process, I created a…

  2. pdf display default

    When I try to export an InDesign file in PDF, it automatically saves it as a 2-page folder booklet.
    The display and layout options in Export to PDF are "default" and cannot be changed to "1 page".
    How can I change this and have a regular 1-page document?

  4. Export PDF, *.ai files with masks areas are inbverted if cropping marks set

    If I export my indesign file with straight page format is ok, but when I want to export my printer's cutting marks and bleed then my *.ai files that were contained in the indesign files are not good anymore: the mask areas that were previously correct are now inverted...

  5. Indesign fails to create new PDF's from imported Xerox scans

    tested on pc version Adobe Indesign CS6 8.1

    All imported pdf color scans from Xerox WC78xx copiers fail to create a new PDF in Indesign when using 'High quality Print' setting in Indesign PDF preferences.
    The only workaround is choosing convert to CMYK (or press quality) in Adobe indesign pdf preferences.
    Xerox now knows about this (I contacted them as first) but they say it's not their fault, Indesigns handels their scans wrong.

    my Xerox contact is Bart.Knops@xerox.com

    Please help ASAP, as this affects all users of indesign with Xerox machines (a lot!)

    Alt text missing on hyperlinks after "Export as Interactive PDF"

    I work primarily in InDesign and create accessible PDFs. During the design stage, I always add the alt text when creating hyperlinks or adding images, and export it as an interactive PDF.

    As we know, after updating beyond InDesign version 16.1, the hyperlink alt text will not appear on the Link tag, but instead, it appears on the "Link - OBJR" (aka "Annotation") tag within the Link tag.

    I work on long reports that usually have hundreds of hyperlinks and this is a big and very time-consuming problem for me,…
