I am saving with these settings:
And ending up with weird transparent line artifacts:
ai file does not have this, and the path has nothing near the place where the lines are showing:
From what I can tell it has to do with rendering the gradient as it appears the line is showing across a color band location, but who knows. How can I prevent this from happening?
I tried saving with a layer underneath it and the same problem occurred, but in a different spot?!?!
