Exporting my work to PDF is distorting the image.

Recommended Posts

I need to export the work as a pdf/x-1a:2003 file.

But when I do export, a portion of the image is distorted. I have no idea why this is happening or how to correct the issue.

I tried exporting as pdf/X-3:2003 just to see if it was the specific format, but the image distorted exactly the same way in that export too.

I need to find a solution soon, because I have an approaching deadline.

I attached images of what the original looks like, and the export (with the big black blob, and some other new lines).

Does anybody have an idea what might be going on, and how I might correct this? Any feedback is appreciated. Thank you.

(I made the image in Designer v1, and am exporting from Publisher v1.)

Nevermind, I identified and solved the problem.

All of those lines converge at two specific locations, and those two locations had little blips on the outline of the element.

I remade the element without those blips, and now the image exports fine.

I do not understand why those little blips caused such distortion in the export, but they did.
