Vector-based export to PowerPoint

Post by David.P »

Hi forum and Tracker Support Team,

I noticed today that some types of PDF comment objects are converted to bitmaps when exported to PowerPoint.

Specifically, ovals and rectangles are affected. These are exported to PowerPoint as bitmaps in most cases, while all other typical comment types, such as lines, arrows and polygons, are exported to PowerPoint correctly as vector objects.

Only if those ovals or rectangles are set to Blend Mode "Normal", and only if not flattened, they will be preserved as vector objects in PowerPoint.

For more details see the attached source PDF and the PowerPoint file created therefrom using "Save as" in PDF-XChange Editor.

It would be great if this behavior could be changed in order to be able to export all typical comment shapes as vector objects to PowerPoint.

Many thanks for looking into this,

Best Regards
