Re: Dashed lines in an EMF graphics are exported as continuous lines

Hi Will,
I see some misunderstanding.

My investigation states that the right result is achieved with:
  • Save to PDF by MSWord 2010
  • print via e.g. PDFCreator
Only the PDFXchange Printer does it not properly.

Please re-evaluate your findings and don't hesitate to ask any questions.

Cheers
