V7 Gradient Vector Hatch Updates

Hello, I was just wondering if anyone knows if there is any progress towards gradient vector hatches, specifically when printing with Rhino PDF? I like to fade the materials of my model slightly to make the dimensions pop more. In my layout the hatch appears as a gradient, but when I open the created PDF the hatch is solid white and hides the model behind it.

The last I saw it mentioned was a comment from October 2019 and am just wondering if there has been any progress?

Thanks!

Gradient vector hatches should work if you don’t have transparency in your colors. The transparency is difficult to get correct in PDF.

Thanks for the quick reply Steve. So currently having transparency on hatches when printing to PDF isn’t really viable?

Gradient transparency is currently the problem.
