An Adobe support care person who shared my screen today was as dismayed as I am by a very strange anomaly that we tried over and over to fix and it still isn't right. One of the spreads in a 280-page book layout is turning the font a darker color. There are no style changes, font colors applied besides black at 100%K, or extra elements on in the layers. Nothing is interfering that we can see. It's just these two pages no matter where they are placed in the document.
We tried deleting and replacing the pages, inserting fresh pages, re-typing the text, stripping all format out of the text in Notepad, played around with different view settings for the document, everything we could think of, but it remains the same. We even reinstalled the font. And I completed rebooted my system, twice!
The font is Garamond from the Monotype foundry (Claude Garamond 2.40). The darker text is also visible in PDF export, which is why I am concerned before press. The text looks extremely light on every page but this spread.
Has any one else ever experienced a similar issue and found what the cause is to apply a fix? Thank you for any help on this!
