Hey everyone,

I'm having some issues while copying / pasting a blended color sequence from Illustrator to InDesign. As you can see from the screenshots below, it seems like when pasting the object into an InDesign sheet it's automatically created a small gap between the squares.

 

How can I fix this? I've already tried setting the overprint preview to see if it was a rendering issue but nothing has changed.

How does it look if you export a PDF?

@Peter Spier you were right. The problem seems to be solved after creating a PDF.

I can think of two ways to get this into InDesign that are better than cooy/paste.

  1. Save your Illustrator file then place it.
  2. Save your swatches from the Swatches panel and import them into the swatches panel in InDesign. Apply the gradient to an object drawn in InDesign. This is better because you can edit the gradient directly in InDesign and you will be able to use the gradient swatch. And the colours in the gradient, for other elements.
