Bug report #2462
Composer non-raster print to pdf ignores svg image items

I have a project file with a composer that I am having to print to pdf as a non-raster file. (This is because of some other bug with unusual vector layer color fills that only shows when exporting as a raster...)
I added an svg image to the composer with a 45 degree rotation to serve as a watermark. The final pdf document has all elements except this watermark and my north arrow svg image. For some reason svg image overlays are not being printed when exporting a vetorized pdf.

Hm, printing svn pictures seem to work for me here with vector pdf (but the composer pictures are always printed as rasters and embedded as images into the svg).
Is this only a specific svg picture or does it always happen? Are you still on Qt4.6, OS X?

Oddly, this issue is again occurring for me in trunk. Can anyone else test? It is as simple as creating a composer map, adding an svg image, such as a north arrow, unchecking the "Print as Raster" option in the General tab, then printing it to a pdf file.
