Printing to pdf with the print composer in QGIS master gives the following problems:

  • If using symbol fills composed of two or more symbol layers: Adding a legend to the map works fine, but when printed out as pdf, the symbols show only one colour (layer) of the symbol (see example 1.png)
  • point symbols are missing in the pdf export
  • If selecting the option "print as raster" the page(s) of the pdf output file are blank

Are you on QGIS 1.8 or master? I can't replicate any of the above on master. If you are on master please provide a sample project (and data) to allow replicate the issue. Thanks!

I can confirm the last one ("output file are blank") on QGIS 1.9-d0d2511 on win 7.
For me the problem appears only with "large" layout. It's work fine with A4 layout.
QGIS Crashes or create empty pdf with A1 or larger layout and at least a raster layer.

may be the same as #7791 and #4821
