I've inherited a file called Logo_Spot.ai. I'm putting together some print ads for my employer using
InDesign CS5 and I'm copy/pasting the logo from
Illustrator into a new layer in InDesign.
For whatever reason (and this is the reason I'm here!) one of the letters is partially transparent. I've checked the opacity and color tint % (basically anything that I know of that would reduce it's perceived opacity) and nothing. The color is
Pantone 200C. If I switch the color to a default InDesign
CMYK swatch then it goes away. It also doesn't show the transparency with Overprint Preview disabled, but shows up when it's enabled.
In the attached image you'll notice that against a white background it has the colour it should. However, when placed over the background it changes. The other letters don't. There must be something fundamental that I'm missing here? If I put something behind the logo in Illustrator, it stays perfectly opaque. Placing the file in InDesign instead of copy/pasting doesn't solve the issue either.
