transparencies not printing to PDF

I did some phasing layout in DR for our scheduling dept. I set transparency at 50% but when I print to pdf the areas and text box transparencies are solid.

Test by printing to something else, like a printer or plotter, output to paper: you need to find out if the limitation is your choice of PDF driver.

Which PDF driver?

Which version of ADR?

 

Does it work if you print to a device/printer/plotter?

Thank you Dean, it does seem to be the PDF driver, the other formats print correctly. We just upgraded to Win 7 so I will have to look into the driver issue.
