Exporting radial gradients with more than 2 colours/stops to PDF in both CMYK and RGB

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I posted this in the Questions section, but believe it's a better fit as a bug report:


When trying to export Radial gradient fills with more than 2 colours or stops to PDF with no rasterisation in CMYK or RGB mode, they get exported as flat white fills.


If presets are used (PDF for print, PDF X/3 or X4, for example), Affinity automatically rasterises the gradient-filled shapes, which affects vector fidelity.


I've attached a source file and output to illustrate the problem. I'm currently running AD v. 1.5.4.


Best regards,
