PDF Export has missing images

Post by jimhealey24 » 15 Aug 2010, 14:24

Using 8.1, when I export a file, there are missing images. The text is all there, and the image boxes, with dropshadows, appear, but no images. I went back and tried this with past layouts and they all print fine. Obviously, there is a problem with this particular layout. Quark tech support had me do a thumbnail drag and drop, but that did not address the problem. All the images are TIF's, with some EPS images at various points. I also tried to Append the Layout, but Quark crashed on each attempt. Any suggestions where to start to troubleshoot? Thanks.

Your previews may be corrupt. Are you using jpg previews for the missing images?
If you are try resaving with a TIF preview and reimporting. If that doesn't work, try deleting the image box of the problem image, creating a new image box and importing again.

Good ole Eric, still finding fixes after all these years. One of the few folks that actually has solutions. I used to bug him all the time, haven't needed any help for a while.
