I've never seen atomic regions in a PDF that hasn't been flattened.

I don't think they're atomic regions.

I've seen very complex all-vector art with gradients and crazy stuff (no flattening) and have it show lines like that onscreen. If there were actual flattening going on wouldn't the atomic regions be rectangular? Yet 2 of those white lines are curves.

We'll never really know until we get a PDF that we can analyze.

(I could be wrong = wouldn't be the first time, certainly won't be the last!)

it looks to be a couple of radial gradients, one with the color going light to dark, and the other is just the opposite, on top of each other, which is transparency at it's finest.
If these are in a circular mask, that's possibly where the curved atomic regions come from.

but, I could be wrong, it's only small sample of the page.

I'm not ruling out live transparency, just doubting that it is a flattening issue.

Same here about being wrong. My wife will testify to that! :rotf:

I have seen atomic regions that aren't rectangular. But yes with a sample PDF it will be a mystery.

Ummmm metlife....I never received a link at my email for this PDF. You didn't actually use the email address spelled exactly as "joe at b4print dot com" did you? All spaces need removed and "at" changed to @ and "dot" changed to .
