gradients/drop shadows
on Jun 16, 2008 at 11:23:47 am

Hi there,
I recently upgrade to CS3, version 5.0.2 and there is a problem that I think stems from using gradients and drop shadows that I've never encountered before. As soon as I add a gradient colour or put a drop shadow behind an image, the colour is affected in the printout. Instead of a graduated colour, for example, lines appear and the effect is ruined. It looks fine on screen though. Has anyone experienced this problem? Is there a solution within Indesign for it? I'd rather not have to create something in Photoshop first.

CS2 should be able to print yur gradient/shadows fine, my guess is a setting got changed.

Go to print and choose avance adn check your transparency flattener setting.

If you are printing seperations than in ouput check your lpi setting.

If that does not do it reset your preferences, by immediately after booting InDesign (hold down SHIFT OPT COMMAND) and say yes to resetting your prefs.
