Hello!

 

I have an indesign document of 38 pages -  text and pictures and some vector graphics. The problem appears when I am exporting the document to PDF - two pages ( on pages 34 and 35) appear to be blank. But pages are appearing perfectly in indesign. 

What I have tried already:

  • I tried copying all the content to the another ind document, I did all the new master pages.
  • I also checked the layer option - show layer and print layer was checked.
  • I put everything to another layer.
  • Did "Overall all master page items" just in case something changes...
  • Tried exporting spreads / separate pages

I am out of ideas, pages 34 and 35 are still gone.

For the first helpers, here is the package file ( I deleted all the links but text and vectorgraphics is still there).

I suggest you Place all graphics from Illustrator. Technically, very simple graphics convert to ID graphics, but placing is a good policy for 99.9% of our graphics. 

 

I would be curious if the pages output with placed graphics.

Hi jejekleri,

I inspected your document, exported page 35 to PDF with a PDF/X-4 preset.

No issues found. All is there. Text, graphic objects, placed images ( only the low-res previews of course, because you did not provide the original image files ). Tested with InDesign 2021 version 16.4.0.55 on Windows 10.

 

How exactly did you export to PDF?

What was your export preset, what were your export settings?

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
