Hello, in the last week I have begun to notice white lines and boxes appearing in my PDFs exported from Adobe Indesign, as well as things like drop shadows, feathers and gradients being replaced with solid white or black boxes. Sometimes these lines and boxes print, other times they dont. This is a new developement just in the last few days, but I can't figure out what, if anything, has changed with the program or the way I'm exporting. Anyone have any ideas?

Stop exporting to PDF/X-1a and use PDF/X-4 or any other setting that exports at Acrobat 5 or later.
