I have a problem with a document because some tiled bitmap fills are not rendering correctly when output as PDF. I believe, given this thread, that this is a known bug. As there’s been no further reply over on that thread, I’ve done some more testing. Here’s what I’ve found so far: I have eleven master pages each using a frame filled with a tiled bitmap. Of these, only four render correctly when output as PDF (using any of the presets). If I export a spread with a non-working master page as jpeg, it renders correctly. (This is not a workaround as I can’t send jpegs to the printer.) If I use a working master in place of a non-working master, the same page then renders correctly. That suggests it's not the spread that's the problem, it's the master page. If I duplicate a working master and use that, it renders correctly. If I then replace the image in the duplicated master with a different one, it no longer renders correctly. If I go back and put back the original image, which was working, it then no longer renders correctly. Therefore it appears it’s not the image I’m tiling that is the source of the problem. If I create a brand new master page from scratch, it does not render correctly, even if I use an image that is working in another master page. The problem is exactly the same whether I output the entire document or just an affected spread. Right now I’ve got a 70-page document I can't publish because about 20 pages of it won't output correctly as PDF no matter what I try. If anyone has any suggestions for workarounds or other things to try, I’d love to hear them, thanks. I’m running Publisher 1.7.3 on a Mac.
