See attached screenshot, these lines appear in the same place on every spread when viewed in preview mode of InDesign CC 2015 - how do I fix this??

Hi @Bim_H -

I came here looking for an answer to the same question, but in tinkering just figured it out.

Turn off Overprint Preview then try presentation mode again.

I had the exact problem you have in the screenshot. I can replicate it repeatedly now. When Overprint Preview is turned on, white lines. Turn it off, white lines gone. You have to do it outside of presentation mode.

I have had overprint preview bugs for more than a year - and I also have the white lines without rulers. I noticed it originally when using the Separations Preview panel. I have submitted bug reports the Adobe but no feedback. I did a post on this community: There is a link in the post to a video, and I wonder if you can replicate the same garbled results using the same steps as in the video?

just for the record—turning on rulers fixed my overprint preview (no lines). Thank you.

Turning on rules works for me using Overprint Preview. But in Presentation mode don't. Sad...

Toggling rulers remove the weird lines for me but this is not a fix to the problem. Is this bug being looked at by @Adobe ?

Adobe - we know that changing to Presentation Mode (shift + w) removes the white line, but it should be there in the first place. Surely this is an easy fix. Switching to Presentation Mode is NOT a solution.
