Hi Derek,

Thanks for reaching out. I imported a cover for a book from Indesign to
pdf, but the pdf lost the color of the book, and the cursor is still
blipping on the pdf.

Blessings,

Maka.

Assuming you have the cover design in InDesign and it's set up correctly, to produce the PDF for your printer, you need to choose in InDesign one of the Adobe PDF Presets and choose, for example, PDF/X-4.

Tick Use Document Bleed settings and crop marks.

Can I ask, why are you importing your book cover? If you need to export the cover as pdf. I suggest you to open the pdf in photo shop make sure the color is on RGB and save the book cover as tiff or jpeg saving it in the quality you need and then Place the cover in Indesign. When you export the finished product for proof or printing you will need to have the specs required by your print to set the correct pdf.

Hello my friend Jumpenjax, I really appreciate all your help, and you're
right.

I have just corresponded with them and one has taken over and dealt with
the problem I had, and now it has been fixed.

Thank you all for your support, you are all appreciated.

May God Bless You All,

Maka.
