PDF export from Designer -> shadow effect is rasterized and no longer a vector element

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I designed a logo and used the outer shadow effect, Radius is set to 0 px. (see picture below)
My expectation was, when exporting this to a PDF x4, that this shadow still is a vector element. When zooming in the PDF file in Adobe Acrobat, I can see that the effect was rasterized.
In the PDF export preferenced, "Rasterize: Unsupported elements" is activated.
Switching this option to "Rasterize: Nothing" will result in a PDF file without any shadow.

Is there any way to keep effects as vector elements like in Adobe Illustrator?

Thanks for your hints!
I'm using Designer 1.6.1 on Mac OS X

Regards, Holger
