Rasterizing effects in PDF Export

Recommended Posts

Outlines are being rasterized in PDF-Export which leads to ugly results. Since the effect is solvable on vector basis only I can't see why it has to be rasterized and not converted to curves.

See images - in the original the N, O, S, W are crisp and clear. In the PDF they are washed out.

Please have a look at it - it is simply unusable.

I am guessing you have some Effect allied to the N, O, S and W which is causing them to become rasterized.

A screen shot of your Layers studio with one of those letters showing would help.

Sorry, I do not get any info about other answering my posts - so it's simply luck when I see a reply.

In the meantime I have drawn the outline manually and din't use the effect.
