When a shape is filled (e.g. tiled) with a WMF vector fill and when exporting or printing this from PowerPoint to PDF, the vector fill is converted to a bitmap at very low resolution (200 dpi).

 

Expected behavior: the vector fill should not be converted to a bitmap when exported to PDF, but should remain in vectorial form.

 

The matter has also been discussed here.

 

The PowerPoint file is attached.
