Bug report #15162

PDF output inconsistently read between Acrobat and OS X Preview

I often use point markers which are circles, open in the centre.

When exporting to PDF from the print composer, the circles display as filled in, but only when reading the PDF in Acrobat. The same filled in circles appear in the legend.

They display as I expect in OS X Preview, as circles open in the centre. See attached examples.

Sounds like a bug in OSX, not QGIS
