Hello,

I'm currently working on a project for my uncle and i need to modify a Multipage PDF on InDesign. I need to alternate my work between my home and his office, so I tried moving the file around using Google Drive, just to discover that once opened, the file remained in Default quality no matter what i did, and once i exported it as an interactive PDF, it stayed that way aswell! The image is awfully pixelated and unusable, I tried moving the file around with a USB Flashrdrive thinking that maybe the problem was me downloading the file from the Cloud, but even that did nothing, the file still gets pixelated. I don't know if this is a software problem or maybe there is something that i should do that i don't know about, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Are you logging into the same CC account on both your office and home computer? If that’s the case you can move the ID file and it’s linked assets into your Creative Cloud Files folder and the files will sync between the two machines after every modification—there would be no need to transfer the file.

You've moved the INDD but lost the graphics. When this happens InDesign will show low resolution previews stored in the INDD file, and export them too as it has little choice.
