Adobe Indesign print issue

Posted on 2007-07-26
Last Modified: 2013-12-02
I am running Windows XP and Adobe Creative Studio 2.   We have an InDesign document that shows exactly as we would like it printed on the screen, with a red/brown header that has a white patterned logo inserted on that top portion of the page.   When we attempt to print the document or export it to pdf, the logo appears as a plain white box.  As far as we know the layers are in the correct order because it looks fine when displaying it in the regular working screen, but not when you attempt to print it or do a print preview.  Any help would be appreciated.

    What file format is the logo in? What color space? What printer are you printing to? Can you post a link to the PDF?

    Have you verified your links? From the Windows menu, click on Links. Highlight the file you are having problems with and click on the first button in the bottom of the Links panel. Find your image and relink it.

    Have you preflighted the document and it shows that everything is OK?
    If preflight is ok then check Window\Output preview\Flattener Preview and Separations Preview. If those shown eny missprint then you have to correct it. most usual is color and then spots colors.

    If that dont help, then ask more and post your file to ee-stuf site to view.
