Hello,

You can pack in a zip file your artwork and post here, or use dropbox, or similar services, and then share the link here.

Anyway, if you have images embedded in your svg, note if they are really embedded or just linked...

When exporting to pdf, there are other options that manage to convert filters to rasters, and/or attach images. Play with them... It's also better to have the pdf in the last version possible (1.5)

Besides of that, there are some bugs when exporting from inkscape to svg. I "remind" to hear something about strokes too thin (< 0.1 pixels) and things like that. So before exporting to pdf, export the features that may be triggering a bug to png, and embed them in your pdf! (a dirty solution).

Sorry
If you have problems:
1.- Post a sample (or samples) of your file please.
2.- Please check here:

Is there some other setting that I need to check. This problem has been frustrating :crazy: me for some time. I need to insert my logo into some documents.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks :D :)


Acemary, would you be able to share the files and tell us which Inkscape version you are using on what kind of operating system?

There are a few things that currently cause difficulties when trying to turn them into pdf, but listing them and asking you to search for them in your file yourself will probably take a lot longer than us just taking a look.

Moini, I'm afraid a spammer has revived an old message here.

Convert JPG to PDF (or other image formats to PDF) You can convert images (jpeg, png, gif, bmp, jpg) to PDF files by using a PDF converter. Simply open the image with a viewer, click on Print and select the PDF printer to convert the image to PDF
