I reduced this rough design to a few elements to show what's happening.
Screenshot 1: What it should look like.
City is a jpg with a PS clipping path and Indeisgn drop shadow.
Text is converted to paths.
Icon is a vector/compound path.
I exported this screenshot as a JPG from Indesign. Looks correct when you export as a PDF as well.
What it looks like at 25% in InDesign.
Now, randomly, if I zoom in and out, the text may show up, but the icon never does.
When I go to Slug View, the text disappears. Then (possibly) reappears in Normal View.
The icon is on the top layer. The city is on the next layer. The text is on a layer below that.
What happens when I delete the city.
Everything else reappears.
I have had even more bizarre display anomolies, and one where I had to bassically rebuild a spread that was designed in 2019 to make a few minor changes.
Hopefully this is enough info to go on. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Pete
Things you might try:
Don't use clipping paths in PS. Use alpha channel transparency instead.
Don't convert text to outlines. Leave text live.
Is the logo a saved .AI file that is File > Placed into the page of InDesign? Not copy n pasted, right?
Is everything the same color model, preferably RGB?
Does it happen if you uncheck GPU Performance in Preferences?
I'm giving you a cautious but optimistic, Hallelujah! That seemed to do the trick!
I knew it had something to do with my aging MacBook and OS trying to support these perpetually updated Creative Cloud apps. It was just so maddeningly glitchy. I was about ready to spring for a new MacBook Pro to solve it, but now I can wait for the M1 16-inch version.
