I have a problem with InDesign. I imported icons in SVG and changed their color using an effect (inner glow). When I see them in InDesign, everything seems fine, the background of the icons is transparent. But when I export the file in PDF, a hatched background (the same color as the icon) appears.
I tried to replace the SVG by PNG files but despite changing the image importation options, some of them have a white background that can't be changed.

The transparent background is not being rendered in the PDF reader.
Are you using Acrobat Reader or Acrobat Professional to view the PDFs?
If not - and using Chrome Reader or Foxit Reader, or any other non-Adobe PDF reader it might have issues interpreting the transparency in the PDF.
If the image has a PNG background - then you need to reimport the the PNG images and when using File>Import make sure to select Show Options.
Alternatively there's a script for it - I wrote about it here - https://creativepro.com/script-show-options-files/...
