Hi,

has anyone any ideas to how to solve this problem. I have text with an object style that is to a specific location (ie bottom of the page, top of the page) and when I save it as idml the items shift position. 

See images attached. 

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi B-2,

I did a new non-facing pages document with 1360 x 650 px sized pages.

Copied your contents to the clipboard. Pasted to original position in my new document.

Exported to IDML, opened the IDML: No item shifted.

 

Something must be odd with your document.

A bit of change when using IDML is expected. So when you use it in an emergency, to go down level, you then need to carefully review the file and sometimes fix it. This is part of the cost. (Some people try to set up back-and-forth editing between different versions and plan constant IDML conversions; don’t do that).

Hi B-2,

best make a sample document available through Dropbox or a similar service.

Post the download link so that someone can inspect the document. We need the InDesign document.

 

Thanks,

Hi B-2,

looked into your document and opened the IDML file as well.

The only thing I currently can tell is that I can see the error as well.

 

Will investigate…
