I keep having some simple shadows wander off on me.

I have a documemnt with many images that all have the same drop shadow, all set by the same Object style.

Every now and then I find one has shifted massivesly to the left. If I open effects, and click "ok" it goes instantly back to where it belongs (or even turn on preview and then cancel). 

I thought it just an screen drawing error, but they show when I "publish online" the same (but I 

It's making my document very unreliable, I have to check through everything carefully every time the client makes a change. 

 

The objects being shadowed are transparent tiffs and the shadows seem to want to snap to the bottom left of the picture boxes (if that helps).

Anyone eles having this? Seen it? Have any solutions?

 

Thanks!

That needs an edit, but the edit button seems to be off... 

"...More" is just an emptly shadowed box — errors within errors.

When I wrote "but I" I wandered off to check... meant to say that PDF's don't seem to show the same shadow error.

Were you recently in a Transporter Room that was malfunctioning?

And a new symptom: Even though in my current "publish online" document the shadows are all behaving, in some of the thumbnails they are showing as shifted.

Have you experimented with trashing/resetting preferences and re-starting InDesign?

That's a good idea. Now I just have to figure out where Adobe has hid them this time around... the obvious ...User/Library/Prefrences/Indesign2021... just leads to a "crash module" text file.

I'll keep looking.

Hi Neal,

you said: "That needs an edit, but the edit button seems to be off..."

That's the case for every user in this forum. Except if you are ACP, MVP or STAFF.

( Or you have a moderator role, of course. )

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
