I updated to Indesign v 16.3.2 and have opened a document I was working on this morning. Random images are not showing in the document. If I PDF it, they are still there, however I can't see them!
I tried switching back to a previous version of Indesign, they are still not showing. I also updated other Adobe apps at the same time.
Any ideas? Have changed display performance from high to typical, this doesn't help either.
File>Export and choose IDML
Open the IDML in InDesign
Save it as a new InDesign file (new file name)
See if the issue is resolved.
No that didn't work. And additionally the effects in the BG have disappeared.
This is a nightmare! Designing in invisible ink!
Will the images show with Overprint Preview enabled?
Does a restart of InDesign help?
Are you seeing this in other documents as well?
If yes: Trash preferences and caches.
If no: Trash caches.
To do that quit InDesign.
 Backup the InDesign cache and preferences folders in your user folder first. Paths see below.
The tilde character in the path description at the start leads you to your personal user folder.
( Folder Library in your user folder is invisible by default installation of your Mac OS. )
 Delete or rename the Version 16 folder.
 Restart InDesign so that cache and preferences are rebuild from scratch.
See the paths documented here, scroll down to "Restore all preferences and default settings":
~/Library/Caches/Adobe InDesign/Version 16
~/Library/Preferences/Adobe InDesign/Version 16
