I had some problems with exporting and printing to a pdf file.
I was missing some color segments. Rhaven and R-F helped me to fix it.
The problem good be that the pdf-exporter from inkscape doesn't correctly.
So to solve this problem you can download PDFill.


After installing you can find PDFill in the inkscape printer menu.

The problem was that several elements which were clearly seen in the original *.svg file were not printed using the "save as" or "prints as" commands. I think that was due to a glitch in the built-in *.pdf exporter. The solution was to use the virtual PDF printer provided by PDFill. Pretty tricky problem but as long as the workaround works everything should be fine. :)

Guys, write in exactly what the problem was, and the steps you took to fix it. If you do this (and future issues), I will make this thread a "STICKY". :)
