Problem saving masked images in pdf

Asked by Karin by Minda of Sweden

I want to save a file in pdf-format containing cropped and/or masked jpeg images.

The problem when saving my work in .pdf format is that all work done on the images are gone and the original images are back then I open the pdf file in Acrobat (in svg format everything is fine!)

What am I doing wrong?

Hope for quick support! Best regards Karin by Minda of Sweden

this is due to a bug in inkscape, the problem has been corrected in the development version.

i assume you are on windows, so you can download the latest development version here:

you will need 7zip to extract it you can get it here:

once you have extracted everything, there's no need to install, you can launch Inkscape directly from within the folder.
