X4 – some PDF presets discard live drop shadows

Hello,

If you use drop shadows in your designs, note that Coreldraw X4’s PDF engine will not include them in the final PDF, depending on the PDF preset.

1. Load shadow.cdr in X4.

2. Publish to PDF – choose PDF for document distribution preset.

3. Look at PDF, shadow not there..

Sigh.. one more reason to use the Sancho Drop Shadow macro
