    EMF images are not properly saved during Save as PDF

      Summary

      EMF images are not properly saved during Save as PDF

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      11v2

      Operating system version

      Windows 7

      Description of the issue

      EMF or WMF image is presented as 72 DPI or similar low res image when using the Save as PDF command.

      vs

      Using a Printer Driver to "print to PDF"

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      1. Create New Layout,
      2. Past EMF or WMF file into the layout, (graphic must have vector graphics or text)
      3. Create new record,
      4. Save as PDF,
      5. View PDF,
      6. EMF or WMF image is presented as 72 DPI image, the text is a 72 bit mapped image

      Expected result

      The graphic should appear as a Full Resolution graphic. Not a 72 DPI or otherwise low res image.

      Actual result

      The text in the graphic are reduced to 72 bitmaps.

      The vector graphics are reduced to 72 dpi images not as vector graphics.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      No error messages.

      Workaround

      No Workarounds except using a PDF printer driver rather than the FIlemaker Save as PDF command.
