DOCX to PDF conversion issue with GroupShape rendering using .NET

I’m seeing two issues saving a word document as a PDF.


1. Word shadow effects applied to transparent images are rendered incorrectly in PDF format. When saved as a DOCX, the shadow follows the shape of the image, with no shadow cast for the transparent portions of the image. When saved PDF, the transparency is ignored and the shadow appears behind the entire “box” of the image.

2. Text positioned over images renders incorrectly in PDF format. When saved as a DOCX the text is positioned correctly. When saved as a PDF, the text is positioned considerably lower and to the right of where it should be.

Thank you!

On the 2nd quote, I was trying to describe the desired behavior. Sorry if that wasn't clear!

Thank you for the help!
