INDESIGN EXPORT FLATTENED PDF

If your document or artwork contains transparency, to be output it usually needs to undergo a process called flattening. Flattening divides transparent artwork into vector-based areas and rasterized areas. As artwork becomes more complex mixing images, vectors, type, spot colors, overprinting, and so on , so does the flattening and its results. You can specify flattening settings and then save and apply them as transparency flattener presets. Transparent objects are flattened according to the settings in the selected flattener preset.

How to Flatten InDesign Documents

The InDesign software program included in Adobe's Creative Suite lets you create professional brochures, books, catalogs and other complex electronic documents for publication. One of the functions that can help the digital designer exercise precise control over graphic elements, color, typography and measurements is the use of layers. Layers are like sheets of paper stacked on top of the digital document, which appear to be on the same level. You can create and apply individual style changes to each layer, but the document quickly bulks up in size. You can flatten — or merge — the layers when the document is completed for ease of distribution or to prevent changes from being made to the document.

Gradients, including drop shadows, all show up as solid blocks when I view my document on an Android phone. I tried different PDF compression and compatibility settings in an attempt to flatten and rasterize all the graphics, but it's clearly not working, as the Android viewer still identifies the outlines of transparent shapes instead of the blended pixels. Is there any way to truly flatten these PDF graphics, so that it doesn't matter whether a PDF viewer supports transparency, while keeping the text as text? I think this is what is happening to your file.
