Subject [jira] [Commented] (PDFBOX-4380) PDF will only print rasterized on Windows
Date Fri, 16 Nov 2018 17:34:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-4380?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16689720#comment-16689720

Tilman Hausherr commented on PDFBOX-4380:

You may ask "why ARGB? why not RGB?" because the patterns don't have a background, the background
is the page itself. For example, the page could have an image, and then a grid pattern would
be painted on top of it, but the image would still be visible in the "holes" of the grid.

> Near identical symptoms to PDFBOX-4123, but only on Windows.
> [This PDF|https://github.com/qzind/tray/files/2587736/AWB_BM82266397503.pdf] will only
print rasterized.  It looks fine in Adobe Reader, but once printed using PDFBOX, it will
always print rasterized.
> PDF was created using Python weasyprint.
> Like PDFBOX-4123, I found a Transparency block inspecting the PDF raw contents. However
the workaround provided in PDFBOX-4123 does not remedy the situation. Furthermore, the behavior
is inconsistent between macOS and Windows.
>  * Windows testing was performed using Java 8u191 and PDFCreator.  Same behavior with
Microsoft Print to PDF.
>  * macOS testing was performed using Java 8u181 and Lisanet PDFwriter.
