Description Leigh Bowden 2016-12-11 18:54:32 UTC
This is my CV/resume so I'd like it kept confidential please. The small circles on the first page have a slight white-ish "shadows". These circle objects are part of LibreOffice clip art library. These objects in the pick list don't appear to have these shadows at all and wouldn't show if the background was left white. 

In my instance I have a pale blue background and the shadow is slightly noticeable within draw but it's not overly intrusive. 

The problem comes when I export the odg to a pdf either using the built-in exporter or the Microsoft PDF "printer". The output has over emphasized the above shadows to being highly intrusive to the extent some of the text in them becomes difficult to read.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Load odg file.
2.Export as pdf.

Actual Results:  
As above really. If there's an option within the pdf export that could tone this down abit.

Expected Results:
I was expecting the pdf output to match what I'm seeing within draw. WYSIWYG it aint!

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No. This is pretty much a clean install.

Additional Info:
This happens on on a two different systems one is Windows 7.1 Starter and the other is Windows 10. The odg is the same as it resides on my server.

Leigh: please create a minimal example ODG, which shows the problem, no confidential information and is under 10MB.

Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided the document.
