Very good program, but I suppose there is a bug.

The transparency of the MS Office documents (file.doc) is not performed correctly in the PDF converting result. The transparency area becomes a black area.

Please see the attached screenshoot.

Hi, any chance you could send that document to info[at]dopdf[dot]com so we could do a test?


Indeed dopdf has some problems with semi-transparent watermarks but I want to be sure this causes the problem. Thanks.

Hi Sofland,

I have just sent you an email with attached documents as you request.

Thanks and have a nice day.

Has anything evolved from researching this? I have had the same issue where a lighter transparent background turns black and a darker transparent background turns white. Thanks.

I replied Giampaolo by email, that's why it's not posted here, but no, this is not solved so if a background contains transparency doPDF will not convert it correctly and the only workaround for that is to remove the transparency and try using a lighter color. We don't have a solution for this because of the way Word sends the transparent image for printing - first it sends the normal image, then at the end it sends the transparent item.

No, this isn't solved, see my suggestion above.
