Hello Adobe Community I'm using Indesign and have created a table, the upper cells row I have done as Header and introduced an image in each cell. The header repeats in each single page after and this is fine. The problem appears when exporting in pdf where the header appears only on the first page and not on the followings. File was created with CS3 first than converted to the last indesign. Thanks alot for your help. Beppe

I also tried it, but it seems to happen after InDesign CC2015 (ver 11.x).

I think this must be a bug.

 

At least my verification did not happen in CC2014 (ver 10.x)

Why don't you try it there if possible?

Hi bellsir,

I tried this with my own table, my own image and with a new InDesign 2021 document on Windows 10.

See no issues with PDF export to e.g. PDF/X-4. All the images are there. Also in the repeated table header rows.

 

You can download my test documents from my Dropbox account:

Hi belisir,

thanks for providing a sample document from InDesign CC 2019 version 14.0.3.433.
I did a test where I exchanged the missing images in the table header that consists of graphic cells with some of my own images on page 2. Exported to PDF/X-4.

 

And yes, I can confirm, that the table header images of the table with the 125 body table rows were not repeated through PDF export on pages 3 to 7 even if the layout is showing them! That's a severe bug.

 

Also exported to IDML, opened in InDesign 2021 version 16.3.0.24 on Windows 10 and had the same results.


Later I will try to create the table from scratch to see if the issue still exists in a new document with 16.3.0.24. Could be that your sample document is damaged because it started its life with InDesign CS3, was saved with CS4 and InDesign CC 2015 and finally worked on with InDesign CC 2019.

 

NOTE TO MYSELF:

In April 2021 I tried this with a table from scratch with InDesign 2021. There was no issue.

But it could well be, that the issue is only showing with more header rows and a more complex table.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
