    Printing problem:line missing when transparency elsewhere on page

    TimNW

      A bug report really:

       

      I've hit a problem whereby if I have a transparent filled area then it causes thin lines to disappear when printing .  I have a line followed by a filled area

      (part of page content stream shown):

       

      /DocColour CS
      0.157 0.157 0.157 SCN
      0.18 w
      603.55 697.36 m
      2661.5 697.36 l
      ...

      S
      /DocColour cs
      0.157 0.157 0.157 scn
      /GS1 gs
      764.11 697.36 m
      764.11 842.97 l
      758.44 842.97 l
      758.44 697.36 l
      f*

       

      /GS1 refers to:

       

      13 0 obj
      <<
      /Type/ExtGState
      /ca 0.5
      /CA 0.5
      >>
      endobj

       

      There is another stroked line after the fill..

       

      If instead of using transparency I use:

       

      /DocColour cs
      0.578 0.578 0.578 scn
      764.11 697.36 m
      764.11 842.97 l
      758.44 842.97 l
      758.44 697.36 l
      f*

       

      then it all works fine.

       

      I've tested on a Xerox laser printer, another has hit the problem with an HP laser printer.  Print as image is okay. I have also been told that Foxit is okay. I am printing at A4 a page whole extent is 46.81 by 33.11 inches.
