Turning transparent bitmap image into vector. White solid lines keep disappearing.

Hello! First time posting because I haven't been able to figure this out through searching. 

 

So I have an image (with some white ink lines) that I drew in procreate that needs to be vectorized. I figured that out along with making it transparent, but when I hit image trace (on High Fidelity) the white lines disappear. 

 

Is there a way to keep those lines? I was considering going back to procreate and doing a black outline just so it doesn't disappear, but if there's an easier way I'd love to hear it.

Not quite sure about the trace settings you are actually using, but there is an option to ignore "white".

 

Is that option perhaps enabled while you are using auto-trace?

White and transparent will be seen as the same by Image Trace.

You can try to create a background with a color that does not exist in your image.

Select the image and the background an choose Object > Rasterize, use the same resolution as your image.

Use Image Trace an delete the color of your background.
