I am trying to copy and move a path filled with pattern around a page. When it is a tiled pattern, everything is OK, but there is a problem with pattern type 2. I get the cos obj of the pattern and move it, but the path filled with the pattern is not moved, although all other paths in documents are succesfully moved. Is there something special you need to do to move a path filled with such a pattern?
When I read the PDF Reference, there is a part about pattern shading operator "sh" - might the problem be connected with this operator?

As to the moving of objects - it is done by obtaining the objects matrix and contectating it with a transformation matrix.

The attatched file contains the "bad" pattern that I cannot copy and move (into a new page in a new doc).

Thank you for any help.
