why does pdf export create image file

I recently updated the version of fedora that I use, and a new Libre Office version was included in the update. Now when I try to export an odt file to pdf I get an error message about transparencies being exported as images. The average file size has gone from 2 mB to 15 - 20 mB which is not usable.

A search of this web site indicates that this was a problem in 2013 and 2015 and was resolved. What is the solution?

The version downloaded with Fedora 28 was Libre Office 6.0.6.2, build 6.0.6.2-3fc28

Any assistance would be appreciated.
