making outputted pdf background transparent [ was:high resolution when printing to pdf, ...]

I’ve managed to make overlay of pdfs work with PyPDF2.

Now I have the problem that livecode outputs a background color to the pdfs I make.

Even if I et the background color of my card, the groups, etc. to empty, I still get a grey background, instead of a transparency.

This means that when I overlay them, the supposedly transparent background overwrites everything else :(

This is another showstopper.

Is there a way to control this?

Among other things, it means that a watermark can’t be made . . .
