In some cases, objects may go missing in the normalized PDF generated by the "Normalize PostScript / PDF / Illustrator 8.0 File" task when Converting Spot colors to a Destination Color Space.
Objects that are in the input Adobe® PDF go missing in the Normalized PDF output.
Running this same task (Normalize PostScript / PDF / Illustrator 8.0 File) on Automation Engine 12.0.0 or 12.1.1 produces correct result.
Normalize PDF task may be used as a work around. But it needs to be followed by Optimize PDF Separations task to convert colors. Some customers may not have the PDF Processor module to do so.
Automation Engine 12.1.0
