When exporting from InDesign to PDF. A full stop at the end of some paragraphs disappears.

I've deleted the full stop and entered it again. But still same problem.

Hi Summayah5FC7, the only "explanation" I have: The dot is outside of the endnotes text. ( Note: I have not all of the needed fonts installed. ) But this should be no issue at all. And indeed it's not. Exported the page to PDF with a PDF/X-4 export preset and the dot is there: So, it could be a bug in your version of InDesign. You are on 16.3.2.151 for Mac. I am on 16.4.0.55 on Windows 10. And you exported with a different PDF export preset. FWIW: In your second document, the untitle...

Hi Summayah5FC7,

very strange…

Could you see the same when you copy over the paragraph to a brand new document and export to PDF from there?

If yes, please share that new document with that single paragraph. Put it on Dropbox or a similar service and post the download link.

 

Thanks,

But this should be no issue at all. And indeed it's not.

Exported the page to PDF with a PDF/X-4 export preset and the dot is there:

So, it could be a bug in your version of InDesign.

You are on 16.3.2.151 for Mac. I am on 16.4.0.55 on Windows 10.

And you exported with a different PDF export preset.

 

FWIW: In your second document, the untitled-2.indd, there are no endnotes texts anymore. So the position of the dot just outside the endnotes text of your original document could be a hint. Just move it inside the endnotes text and see if it makes a difference.

 

Screenshot of untitled-2.indd where the endnotes text was copied over and in the process lost its "endnotes"ness:

Note: Moving the dot inside the endnote text would also serve another purpose: If you ever want to convert the endnote to a footnote you will remove everything outside the endnote text, also the dot.
