Why does actor exports as bitmap in vector export formats

0 votes

I've tried a few versions on windows and Mac and the result is the same:

 - The Actor (image of a human in UML Palette) is exported as a bitmap when exported to vektor export formats (I tried EPS and EML. I can't see any other object and I think it look bad when printing so what can I do to get it vectorized?

It's obvious a bug but maybe there is a workaround!?

Kind Regards,

EPS and EMF are very limited formats. Try SVG export if you need or want decent vector graphics. (And indeed, the UML actor exports just fine to SVG.)

It is a valid work around to export to svg and then export it to eps with another tool like Inkscape, so thank you! The Actor in UML is however a circle with 4 lines and not a good reason to blame eps or emf as formats. Import formats for word editors does rarely support SVG (I use 3 major) but that might change in the future.
