The text frame on the InDesign layout does not appear in the export
Make sure that the text frame is included in the InDesign Article.

- Adding the frames manually to the InDesign Article
- Deleting the InDesign Article and generating a new one (note that you will lose any changes that you may have made to the order of the article items)
