Placed and rotated Pub file with outer shadow is cut off in exported PDF


Recommended Posts

Revisiting  at an old bug of mine and simplifying the steps, led me to perhaps find a different/related bug or maybe refine the original bug.

Placing a Pub doc within another Pub doc. First doc contains an object with an Outer Shadow. When rotated in the second doc, the resulting exported PDF cuts off the shadow at what appears to be the bounding box of the object. This is seen in the Export preview before the file is even exported. Seems to be PDF specific as a PNG export works fine.

Hi @prophet,

Thanks for your report!

Although related to your previous post, I'm going to log this as a separate issue with our developers - as I agree this appears to be limited to the bounding box of the object within the placed document and therefore may affect other functionality that has yet to be explicitly found, such as you have with the FX Outer Shadow.

I hope this helps :)

Please note -

I am currently out of the office for a short while whilst recovering from surgery (nothing serious!), therefore will not be available on the Forums during this time.

Should you require a response from the team in a thread I have previously replied in - please Create a New Thread and our team will be sure to reply as soon as possible.

Many thanks!
