Workaround the 'no shadows' bug in Pages and Keynote
Authored by: barryjaylevine on Jan 28, '05 12:00:13PM

Following the previous advice, I printed to postscript, then dropped the resulting file onto Acrobat (which launched Distiller, converted the file, and opened it within Acrobat). The drop shadow appeared and printed.

While this isn't a fair comparison, Pages generated a 4K pdf while, working from the "print to PS" file (from Pages), Acrobat generated a 20K pdf. I'm sure there's a bit of overhead so maybe the difference isn't as dramatic once the file size (within Pages) grows.

I'll leave that for others to determine.

Two things in this world aren't overrated: Macintosh and Lemon Meringue Pie.
