Workaround the 'no shadows' bug in Pages and Keynote
Authored by: _merlin on Jan 31, '05 06:58:12AM

Preview doesn't rasterise Postscript files when it converts them to PDF. The print engine rasterises some objects when it creates a Postscript file. Shadows can't be described any other way in Postscript, so they're rasterised. Then Preview gets a Postscript file containing rasterised shadows, and makes a PDF with rasterised shadows.
