    Not sure what to call this in the subject line, but i've never seen anything like this before. I did not build this logo, but I am trying to do a simple one color version of it. I was able to make a black version of it easy seen attached. However, when i tried to do a white version. The Marley on top disappeared, see attached.

    What is that and how can it be fixed? Also when i did a hi res pdf of it in black. I can tell the blacks were in different color even though it was at 100% K. So something funky is going on with that.

    I checked the attributes over print and i saw nothing.

    Any thoughts or help?

    • It could be a compound path, which sometimes creates problems when filling. If so, try releasing it (from the Object menu
    • The black could be set to overprint, which would give unexpected results when changed to white
    • It could be something else

    Type is set to multiply on the transparency dialog box, if you multiply white it dissapears...

    Select the type and set the blending mode to normal...
    :D

    You know what...i thought you were joking when you said that, i was thinking that can't be it. Why would someone set it on multiply and then i checked and you were right!! OMG!!

    Probably because they didn't know how to correctly set an overprint, since the net result in this case is the same.

    Cheers
