I am working on a very basic InDesign project (my first one), and have one trouble that is progressively driving me crazy.
I need some bold text, and so have added a 0.25pt black stroke to my 10pt text where needed. However, when exported to .pdf, I end up having a sort of white stroke. It looks as follow:
I tried to export in various Adobe formats, with or without transparency flattening. I tried opening the file with various reader versions.
I tried several conversions:
InDesign → JPEG → PDF from the JPEGs (not recognized as valid format)
InDesign → PDF → exported as JPEGs → JPEGs combined to new PDF (not recognized as valid format)
InDesign → PDF → combined to PDF (you never know)(didn't work, lines still there)
InDesign → PDF → PrintToPdf (lines still there)
The worst part being than when I print, it looks perfect, the white lines are not there. But I need to send the file as a pdf, and it will be mainly seen this way, so I can't afford it displaying that way.
So, what could cause that? How to prevent it?
