Bug details

Transparency Bug

Periodically, transparency function stops working. Objects previously displayed as transparent no longer render that way. Usually restarting indesign fixes it.

    Hi, I have the same problem at Dave.
    "overprint preview" is dis-activated.
    The problem only appears in one file. When i copy across a fill with gradient feather and paste it to the problem file, the fill loses its transparency.

    You may have "Overprint Preview" selected. Go to View > Overprint Preview. It's off when it's unchecked (checkmark is gone).

    Can anyone help??

    In indesign CC, when I create a frame with a fill, or place an image its appearing transparent. I've checked opacity, which is at 100% and blending options which is set to normal.

    Version 13.1; Select any object or image and go to the transparency settings. Try to select a transparency setting but drop down stays on 'N
