text disappears after exporting to PDF

I'm working on a magazine, it has a lot of dark photographs where I've placed white text over it, as you can see in the screenshot below.

Here's the problem: when I exported the document to PDF, I noticed that some of the white texts has disappeared. And it's totally random too! Not every white text dissapears, just some of them.

I've tried different export settings but nothing seems to work. Bleedline on or off, different kinds of PDF's, even exporting to JPG. It still randomly throws off some of my text.

Can someone help? My deadline is closing in so I need to fix this fast! Thanks in advance!

Hi roanv94509714,

without seeing into the original document it's hard to tell what's the reason.

I don't think its a random problem. One reason could be that some of the white text is set to overprint.

This is hard to achieve, but still possible.

 

If overprint is the problem switch the view to Overprint Preview.

Can you still see all the white text?

 

Regards,

What's your exact version of InDesign and operating system?
