Layers not working as expected on exported pdf.
« on: June 09, 2016, 06:21:33 pm »
Hello,

I'm a new user of Scribus using version 1.5.1 from the ubuntu repositories. I imported an svg with layers into Scribus and Scribus correctly displays the layers and lets me hide/display them as expected. I have then exported the document to pdf (PDF 1.5 with 'include layers' selected). When I open the exported pdf with evince viewer the list of layers is there in my document, but hiding or showing them has no effect. All the layers are always displayed.

I've attached the sla file of the imported document, and the resulting pdf, can anyone suggest what I can do to have the layers work as I expect in the exported pdf?

Thanks!

a.l.e
