Having trouble saving eDrawing assemblies with transparent parts

A month ago I created an assembly and emailed an eDrawing (EASM) to an electrical engineer with the outer covers and inner shelves set to transparent so the internal components could be seen. There was no problem there.

 

Today I needed to create something similar but different so I opened the old assembly and used "pack and go" to make a duplicate with different part names to save myself the work of starting over. Then components were deleted, added, modified, etc to the new assembly. No matter what I try now, I can't get the EASM of this new version to save with covers and shelves set to transparent in Solidworks 2017 SP 2.0. Even setting them to transparent in the eDrawing itself and saving won't work.

 

Does anyone know what could cause this and what the solution might be?
