Topic: post scripting an ID document

I have an issue. We are trying to place an Indesign document into another Indesign document. The document that we are placing has several different open type fonts in it, some color images and Illustrator eps's. The problem is the 4/c's or images. Some of the images have feather effects or drop shadows on them, which the effects were done in ID. When this ID document is placed (using command D) into the target ID document, things are fine visually. The problem occurs when we postscript the file. We are post scripting to a local machine using the PDF 1.4 settings. In each of the instances the images that have the feathering or the drop shadow breaks up into large squares that don't match up. Each image inside the squares are at different sizes. The strange thing about it is that it is only happening to the feathered or drop shadowed images. I was thinking that it could be a layering issues between the two documents. Where you have a layered target document and then another layered added document being stacked on top of one another. Could there be an issue with layering were the feathered areas can't be postscripted between the two documents? Some insight would be appreciated. I know this is a weird issue. I will try to post a pdf tomorrow. Thanks.
