[Ipe-discuss] question on some PDF's generated by IPE not showing in Chrome browser

Sometimes a PDF generated by IPE do not display fully when
viewed inside Chrome or Brave browsers. But displays OK when
using Brave or Firefox.

I'd like to ask if this is related to how IPE generates
the PDF's in some way or if this is a bug in Chrome. This
happens only to few files. Might be related to use of
Opacity in this IPE drawings?

I've send a bug report to Google's Chrome also.

I've posted this question on this at


More information about the problem above.

Here is the link to the files needed to reproduce: This is
same link in the post above


For some reason, when opening the file image.pdf inside Chrome, the
text do not show up. Text shows up when using local adobe pdf reader.

Also when compiling this small foo.tex file


This is my image


And looking at foo.pdf inside Chrome, the whole image do not
show up.

This looks like a bug in Chrome for me, but thought to ask
here, may be someone can shed some light on this, since the
image.pdf was generated by IPE 7.2.7 on windows 10.

Thank you
