Shading not showing in PDF File

Here is my question. I have to shade a drawing on auto cad. I go into the "hatch" command click on the solid block and then turn the transparency up all the way to its lightest shade. The shading shows on the drawing and even in paper space, but once I save the drawing as a PDF when I look at it all it is is black (like the solid color)..Why is it doing this and how do I get it to show the shading effect?? I am not sure if I have to turn on or off another setting or something.  Thanks!

within the PLOT-dialog you have a checkbox using transparency for plotting or disabling it, how is it set at your dialog?
