    In using Publisher: I have images on the documents "Master Page" set to 95% transparency.

    When I save the document as a .pdf, the image from the Master Page comes out as 0% transparent. This obscures the main text of the document and ruins it's appearance.

    I am using the following method to save the document as .pdf:

    1. Click the File tab.
    2. Click Save As.
    3. In the File name box, enter a name for the file, if you have not already.
    4. In the Save as type list, click PDF (*.pdf)
    This has become an issue recently, but I had not had this issue months ago when I had previously tried this same task.

    In settings for "Default apps by file type" I have Adobe Acrobat Reader DC set for .pdf's, but I have the same issue when using Microsoft Edge (recommended default) or Drawboard PDF.

    Also, I have the most recent version of Office and of Adobe Acrobat Reader installed.

    Any insights into a work-arounds or alternative .pdf apps to use? All suggestions are greatly appreciated.
