|Summary||0015008: Exported pdf doesn't show shadows or transparency from imported pdf|
|Description||Please take a look @ screenshot. Imported and placed pdf is not mine and most probably contains shadow effects with transparency. Scribus displays it OK but export is messed (I export in pdf 1.3). I can send source pdf privately and of course help to track this, just guide me.|

||Ok, when I export into pdf 1.3 transparencies are lost. But I usually export transparencies and they are flattened (to white?). Question here: can Scribus flatten shadows during export to lower pdf version?|
||no scribus cannot flatten...|
Oh I see. So PDF is imported and rasterized by GS. Then during export depending on PDF version it exports transparency or not. But take a look @ screen, red rectangle below map is visible, so only shadows are not exported with PDF 1.3 (they look fine in PDF 1.5). It seems like PDF 1.3 supports only full transparency mode.
Maybe it's possible to add preflight check for > 1.3 features?
Preflight verifier already checks for PDF > 1.3 features if you select PDF 1.3 preflight profile.
Shadow effects use PDF transparency which came only with PDF 1.4 and hence require PDF >= 1.4.
