I have created a PDF document with Writer. The front page of this document consists of a background picture, on top of which is a white semi-transparent “draw object” and on top of that again, the title.
When converting the document to PDF, the result is fine. When uploading the document to Google Documents however, it renders the draw object in black rather than white, which is undesirable.
I assumed the PDF conversion would “flatten” the layered front page into a single image. It seems the PDF however keeps the draw object separated from the background and that Google renders it black.
I don’t assume Google will do anything about this. So I would like to force the PDF conversion to merge this object down into the background, rather than using transparency. Is it possible to do that and how?
The PDF document on Google doc is available here.
