I'm experiencing an issue when I export to PDF, I get outline of all shapes, in any document, even though I have all parameters non active (except "Fill"). Strange behavior happend with the latest update, before I had no such issue.

I had the same issue today as well.

The Outline is turned off for all items but they still print.


@eilina - I solved it by turning the Outline on and setting the transparency to 100%. Hopefully we'll get a permanent fix though.

We’ve identified the issue and this will be fixed in July. You may try workarounds below.

  1. Enable the "outline" formatting card, set outline color to white, disable the "outline" card
  2. Enable the "outline" formatting card, set outline transparency to 100%, disable the "outline" card

Hi @v-chuncz-msft !


Was there a fix to this bug in the July 2021 release? I am still experiencing this same problem in Feb 2022. Luckily, setting the transprency to 100% workaround works. But I must do this fix manually to hundreds of elements. 

Also, this problem does not seem to be affecting all elements, just some of the images and most of the text elements.
