Gradient Print Issue with Chrome/Pdfium

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. (56.8 KB)

We tested the scenario with printing from Firefox with Microsoft Print to PDF option and everything is fine. So, this is obviously some PDF compatibility issue with Chrome. Please ask Chrome support about this problem.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as WORDSNET-16057) have been fixed in this Aspose.Words for .NET 21.11 update also available on NuGet.
