I have been working in the same document the past few days with no issues. even this morning everything was working normally. I was using a few objects with lighter opacity applied to them.

All of a sudden every object that had an opacity applied to it was displaying at 100% opacity. When I try to go back and adjust the objects opacity, nothing visibly happens.

Maybe I hit something on the keyboard and changed a setting unknowingly?

Any ideas as to what may be causing this issue?

  • Hello, can you adjust the opacity of objects in a new document? I am not aware of any keyboard shortcuts that would prevent changing opacity, but you could always try resetting your preferences. What does your effects panel look like? – AndrewH Jul 12 at 13:39
  • Yes they changed in a different document. I actually just closed out of my indesign and reopened the file, and everything is working like normal. Just curious as to how my settings were changed so easily... – Joe Wilde Jul 12 at 13:45
  • Not sure. When in doubt, close out and open. – AndrewH Jul 12 at 15:15
