I have exported table from calc to pdf and then opened it in draw. Exporting this pdf to jpg is impossible with good quallity

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any vector graphics in Draw
2. Select some objects and press export
3. No matter which DPI (default 96) you have selected - the image resolution will stay the same!!!

Think the DPI with jpg's was set to 96, to fix some other issue in bug 65695
Comment 2 Yan Pas 2016-02-01 21:24:17 UTC
The same for png. DPI value does not affect on anything (but should affect on resolution). Only changing resolution values affects on resulting image
Comment 3 Regina Henschel 2016-02-02 22:26:34 UTC
You have to set first the resolution and then the size. Then correct number of pixels is generated. The dpi information in the png-file is correct for me. The dpi information in the jpeg-file is wrong. That is already tracked in bug 85761.
