Issue

Objects in placed InDesign files disappear when printed or exported to PDF from InDesign CS4. These itemsare left hand master page items inlinked InDesign file(s).

Here is a typical example of a workflow that replicates this issue:

1. Create a 4 page document.

2. On both A-Master pages, create an object (filled with color).

3. On all document pages, create a rectangle and fill with color.

4. Save doc as 'doc1.indd'.

5. Create a new 4 page document.

6. Place all pages of doc1.indd into the new document.

7. Print or export to PDF.

The resulting output will display but all left master page items are missing.

Reason

This is due to an error in calculating the coordinates for the page items. The items may actually be included in the resulting print or PDF data streams, but are positioned outside of the page boundaries.

Solution

Solution 1: Install the InDesign CS4 6.0.1 update.

Solution 2: Use the 'Override all master page items' command.

  1. Open the original linked InDesign document.
  2. In the Pages panel, select all pages that contain page items sourced from left handed master pages.
  3. From the Pages panel fly-out menu, choose Override All Master Page Items.
  4. Save the InDesign document.
  5. Open the "host" InDesign document and update the link(s) to the .indd file(s) modified with the steps above.

Solution 3: Disable the Facing Pages option

  1. Open the original linked InDesign document.
  2. Choose File > Document Setup and disable the Facing Pages option.
  3. Save the InDesign document.
  4. Open the "host" InDesign document and update the link(s) to the .indd file(s) modified with the steps above.
