Live Filters are not processed properly in exported PDFs

Recommended Posts

Windows 10 Home 1903, Publisher 1.7.2.471.

When I add a Live Filter – Perspective, Twirl, etc. - to a layer, via the Photo Persona, what I get on-screen is correct – redraw is a bit messy but I can put up with that for now – but when the document is exported to PDF the filter is no longer applied.
Exporting to a PNG seems to be fine, exporting to a PDF is where the problem comes in (I haven’t tried other export formats).
See attached AFPUB, PDF and PNG for examples showing (clockwise, from top-left) Twirl, Perspective, Voronoi, and Motion Blur.

Note: I’ve been told that the same thing applies to exporting to PDFs from Photo but I’ve not tried that myself yet.

Note: I've used both Adobe Acrobat and Firefox to view the PDFs and they both display the same way.
