    Hello can anyone tell me why my PDF exports from Indesign lack black text? The pictures with black in them appear fine but text appears several shades lighter then black. This happens in Indesign on the Macs at school, as well as on Windows Xp at home. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Sounds like document construction errors if it's happening on more than one system.
    Are you sure that the black is actually 100% black?
    Post an example PDF.

    Ok well I found what it was. Color destination wasn't set right in the export options.
