Does anyone know what this is?
The text in boxes like this does not export to pdf
the only fix is replacing with a real text box
I would like to fix it without replacing I have quite a few of them.

Is it annotations in a pdf?
oh, nvm, what app is that in?
Gonna kick it root down

looks like something that was copied from 1 app to another. 
Like the text may be in an Illy file, select, copy, paste into Indesign, result you get weird text boxes


not sure tho, just a guess because I've seen similar objects.

It seems to be an interactive button, I can see a click button.
on output so far I figured out to select  interactive elements and then include preview
the buttons disappear and the text is there.
haven't proofed it yet to see if bad things are gonna happen
I haven't figured out how to remove this function from indy before output

David

open up the Interactive window (Object menu, scroll down to Interactive) and select "Convert to Object", that will remove the interactive part and make it a regular text box.


hopefully

I'm done with the file (I think)
but where the heck is that object menu? I go to window/ interactive but I don't see it

You have to right click the object to bring up some options, go to interactive, then click convert to object.

the object menu is at the top, next to the File - Edit - Layout - Type - Object - ...



or right click like she said

Ah! ok, I was there but was selecting the wrong thing
I was selecting convert to text, but that makes too much sense!  ;D

"There's been a lot of research recently on how hard it is to dislodge an impression once it's been implanted in someone's mind. (This is why political attack ads don't have to be true to be effective. The other side can point out their inaccuracies, but the voter's mind privileges the memory of the original accusation, which was juicier than any counterargument ever could be.)"
