Problem exporting .svg to .pdf using inkscape


Question

I have a problem when exporting (or "saving as") some .svg files into .pdf using Inkscape. For some reason, some random "small" parts of the pictures are not rendered. Is there a way to "force" inkscape to export everything, is there a solution another software I could use instead ?

Here is an example file: svg file here and pdf file here. The round bits of the notes are not rendered in the pdf.

(I use the latest version of Inkscape (0.91))

Inkscape's pdf generation is usually very good so I wouldn't go complicating matters with additional software/tools.

Sometimes a file benefits from the objects being ungrouped. Sometimes you'll find that a slightly open object won't export happily and sometimes flipping the direction of a path helps.

I've had a quick play with your file and I'm stumped as to why it won't export the simple ovals. If I were you I'd quickly re-add these elements as a test oval I added exported fine.

I notice that you're using filter effects - bear in mind that these result in non vector elements which may cause you trouble. They get rasterised at a resolution that you set on pdf export.
