I can't test this ATM.

i tested the file: the problem is not with images -- as dogil first supposed -- but with the vector drawing cloned 200+ times on the first and last page.

you can read in the forum what i've tried out:,2002.0.html

The problem was the SVG graphic used as a pattern. I'll post this in a new bug eventually with an example file, hold on tight. Where is the checkbox to close this issue, am I blind?

You're not blind. Reporter unable to close ticket. ale closes later, if this is really justified.

@ale the other bug was closed. I guess we'll never find out what the issue was.

dogil, well, in the original file it was pretty clear that the problem was related to the paths.

if jean is not able to replicate / does not want to look deeper into this, i think there is little i can do.

since you say that the pattern alone gets printed, i wonder if you are doing something different in the two files...

that file is just the first page from the old file with the other pages deleted. Would you try? It always worked for me, just in the printshop the Windows adobe acrobat and the preprocessing software was not able to handle the file.

on mac with acrobat reader i can

- read overload-test.pdf
- create a pdf from pattern.sla and read it with acrobat...

... so this issue seems to be somewhere else...
