Export PDF and keep transparency of pixel layers

Recommended Posts


when I export my design to pdf, i noticed that the pixel layers with transparency become flattened, based on their bounding box with everything below.



I want to export the PDF without the layers being flattened, so my clients could edit the layers position when reimporting them to any other application.


How can I do this?

Hi FabianSchempp,


Welcome to the Forums :)


Please could you go to File > Export > PDF  and then click the More button towards the bottom of the window. This should bring up some advanced export options one of them should read [Rasterise:] please change this drop down to nothing then try exporting to see if your pixel layer stays transparent :)


I hope this helps
