Publisher 2.4.0.2256 Transparency issues on MacOS


Recommended Posts

The new beta has introduced transparency issues when creating a PDF to: PDF for Print , PressReady or PDF-X4.

I've attached two PDFs, one done in 2.3, and another done in the latest beta for comparison.

2.3:

transparency_good.pdf

2.4.0.2256

transparency_bad.pdf

 

Original sample file

Hi @Seneca,

This appears to be an issue with 'Advanced Features' for the respective PDF presets...

When unchecked in the 2.4.0.2256 Beta the 'obvious' export issue is no longer present for those three presets, though of course unchecking the option causes its own issues, i.e., rasterisation where you wouldn't want rasterisation..

Thanks @Seneca. Just to clarify, we think this was also broken in 2.4.0.2222 and 2.4.0.2240 as well, but that 2.3.1 does not do this.

By "The new beta has introduced" are you suggesting this file was exporting correctly for you using the last beta 2.4.0.2240 ?

I've just checked my PDF files exported with previous beta version and indeed the problem is there.

Funny I didn't notice it then. 🙂

The issue "PDF Transparency doesn't export correctly" (REF: AF-1916) has been fixed by the developers in internal build "2.4.0.2290".
This fix should soon be available as a customer beta and is planned for inclusion in the next customer release.
Customer beta builds are announced here and you can participate by following these instructions.
If you still experience this problem once you are using that build version (or later) please reply to this thread including @Serif Info Bot to notify us.
