problem saving pdfs...
« on: April 17, 2012, 04:31:35 AM »
Hi guys,

I am a casual user of inkscape and use it to design posters, banners and flyers for my retail store. I have finished a banner and I'm having problems with saving the file as a pdf. Basicall what is happening is that my logo and a box, that both have the drop shadow filter applied to them, disappear from the pdf file that is saved. If uncheck the rasterize filters box when saving, the images are there in the pdf, obviously without the shadow... If I remove the filters from each of the images then the pdf saves correctly. So the issue is obviously withe filter rasterization.

What options do I have to remedy this?

Hi, sorry I am do not know how to help. As most of us on this forum use Inkscape to creating files for electronic cutters it may be a while before someone savvy with software drops by the forum and can help.
What I would suggest is you visit the dedicated Inkscape forum as they have graphic designers and programmers as their members. They are the people with the knowledge and should be able to help you. http://www.inkscapeforum.com/ It will be better than waiting if anyone here can help.
I hope you find a solution fast and can go back to creating.
