When loading the .docx file contained in the .zip file, then saving the Aspose.Words.Document to a PDF, the PDF renders fine in Chrome, however when printing there are artifacts interfering with the gradient background. It seems like there are large and barely opaque blocks that mute out some of the gradient. Not only do they appear on the physical printer, but if, from Chrome, the PDF is printed to the Microsoft Print to PDF “printer” option, the resulting PDF looks just as it does coming off the physical printer. If the PDF is opened in Adobe and printed, the gradient appears fine. If the .docx is opened in Microsoft Word and saved as a PDF or printed to the Microsoft Print to PDF “printer” option, the issue does not exist.
