PDFwriter in Flow

I have uploaded a workspace from Form to Flow that together with some other writers writes a PDF document. When run in Form no error messages appears in log. But when run in Flow following message appears:

| This FME edition does not recognize the `GeometryFormat' function. Please ensure that the current platform supports this function, 
  the function name is spelled correctly, and that you have installed all required plug-ins
| PDFWriter: Unable to write the following raster geometry in the 'JPEG2000' format


This happened after I added a FeatureReader to add more data in the workflow, but I can’t make any sense that this update to the Workspace is the issue. If I disable the PDFwriter in the updated Workspace and run in Flow everything works. And if I run the Workspace in Form with the PDFwriter enabled everything works. So could it be something with the FME Flow version? Also the raster feature written to PDF is read in .png format in the Workspace.

We have Form version: 2023.1.2.0 Build 23641 - WIN64

and Flow verison: 2023.1.2 Build 23641 - win64
