Wrong layout exports sometimes

Post by rickpoet » 31 Jul 2011, 12:21

Strange quirk...when exporting a pdf or when exporting to an eps from a project with multiple layouts, sometimes the wrong layout exports...not the open one I'm working with. If I go back and double click on one of the pages in the layout so it is 'selected" then re-export the PDF or EPS the right (active) layout will export. But shouldn't the active one export to begin with?Using Quark XPress 9 on latest verison of Mac OS X Snow Leopard on last year's iMac i7 with lots of memory.Thanks.

Hi,
Issuewhich you mentioned wrong layout export, can you explain more on this.
inTransparency issue; are you using spot colors where you have appliedtransparency, if yes this may result inunexpected result, check the same with spot colors.
Youcan try by using PDF 1.6 or above version from Illustrator, later import intoXPress and try it may work.
Thanks,

after several tests :The problem disappears if : you save as your illustrator .eps file in illustrator pdf file (I don't see any interest to that :( ) you save as your illustrator .eps file in illustrator native file = .aireally strange, it was working with illustrator .eps file before 8.5 versionVery boring :(
