Exporting as PDF results in transparency bug

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I want to export a print ready PDF where parts of the design are transparent and other parts are solid.

What happens is that suddenly every element has a transparency. I don’t know why, In the meantime I tried different options – creating a new document from scratch w & w/ artboards, changing the colour, changing the layer/element opacity instead of the colour opacity, converting the text into paths (which sometimes work, but overlapping digits result in some strange boolean effects).


I recorded a shot clip trying to show what’s going on.




Any ideas what else could cause this? Is it the colour-format?

I think I found a solution … feel free to delete the post. :)


I believe it was caused by global colours, while I changed it for one object – not by clicking the »Edit Global Colour« button – it applied the effect to all other objects using the same colour. I thought one would explicit have to click that button.


Well, I think I need to make further tests. ;)
