dropshadow issue when creating a PDF
on Feb 10, 2012 at 9:56:04 am


I have a project that looks fine while in Indesign, but when I create PDFs it is showing light grey boxes around any object that has a Indesign generated dropshadow.

This is what it looks like once I make a PDF.

so far I've tried the following things to no avail:

• a variety of PDF export settings,
• going to edit > transparency flattern preset and trying to adjust the setting there.

Here is a package of the .indd file and additional assets:

It looks like there are a lot of people with this same problem online but I have yet to find a solution. I am hoping the solution is not "dont use that feature in Indesign"
