Workaround the 'no shadows' bug in Pages and Keynote
Authored by: jon16z on Feb 03, '05 10:54:45PM

Adobe inDesign has had the same problem since version 1 - making the extensive PDF export features seem rather pointless.

(If your own apps can't preserve drop shadows and illustrator CS reports InDesign gradients as "WARNING! Unknown shading type" then there must be something wrong.)

As regards to Pages, I managed to create a Quartz ColorSync filter through the print menu to convert the document to CMYK and produced a 2.6MB PDF (retaining drop shadows).
