Hi,

This isn't strictly a Mac issue but I wasn't sure where else to post this problem that I'm having with and Indesign CS6 document (yes I've tried Adobe Help but had no luck as yet):

 

 

 

  • 304 pages
  • Using master frames and master page items (page numbers and running heads, about 25 master spreads in all)
  • 6 or so pages suddenly had an enormous pasteboard and the text on these pages disappeared (but did not reflow onto the next available page)
  • I deleted these affected pages, the text automatically reflowed and I added in new pages at the end of the doc to accommodate the overset text.
  • I also deleted the master pages that were assigned to the 6 affected pages and recreated them
  • The Indesign doc looks "fixed" but won't print or PDF. The error message is here:

I sent the file to a colleague and it appeared to work fine on her computer.

 

 

 

I also copied all the text that was in linked text frames (about 280 pages worth) and copied it into a new document. The new document also has master text frames but no other master page items. The new doc also won't print or PDF.

 

 

 

Sending the file to my colleague is a work-around that will do for today but I need the file to behave before I send it to the printer.

 

 

 

Any help?

 

Thanks!

What is the difference between your version and your colleagues version of Indesign?

I'm on CS6 and she's on CS5.5. I had to save it as an IDML for her to access it..

 

 

Update, I restarted my computer and now it looks like this... weird!

Do things work properly if you open the IDML file?

No, when I open the IDML file in CS5.5 there are two pages that show this weird pasteboard (one sticking out the the left and the other to the right), and when I open it in CS6 it still looks like the image I attached above. I deleted the whole chapter and recreated it in a separate doc, then moved the pages into the original doc (using Pages>Move Pages). Now the pasteboards look fine, however I'm still getting an error message on export. thanks for your suggestions though :)
