Image trace help - ignore white removes all white inside design too

Hi - I'm very new to illustrator.  I've navigated placing my image (originally procreate) into illustrator, embedding it, and image tracing it with 'ignore white' ticked on to retain the transparency.  However, I've come across an issue in that as some parts of my design are white, these are now been 'ignored' too so I now have transparent areas within my design.  I don't really wish to have to re-touch up a design with white in and use a different colour?  I am confused as to why an image with a totally transparent background yet white in it (it all looked great when i did ctrl-shft-D) defaults to one with a white background if you don't have the ignore white ticked. Any advice appreciated.  Thank you.

If you don't check Ignore White, you can remove the parts manually after expanding..

Use the Direct Selection tool (A) to select these white parts and delete.

Thankyou.  I'll look into that. I've not used it before.  I was just surprised that making sure a file had a transparent background seems to do nothing as soon as you image trace.

Yes, that's one of the things missing, keep transparency...
