Output RTF field with image to PDF drops the image

edited November 2012 in Devices
Ver 14.07 (and earlier versions) When printing an RTF field to PDF, if
the RTF contains an image will not always display image,

The output stops when it starts to generate the image from the rtf file,
but not always!

Never a problem , when viewing data in print preview, so RB is always
able to read the rtf file out correctly but not when the output is PDF
Any help??

    The PDF device does not currently support InfoPower RichText with images
    embedded. This is due to the fact that the rendering logic InfoPower
    uses utilizes the API function ModifyWorldTransform which is currently
    not supported by the PDF MetaGraphics object. This is something we have
    spent an enormous amount of time and resources researching and is still
    an open issue/project for a later release of the product.

    As a work-around, you can either set the PDFSettings.ExportRTFAsBitmap
    property to True or separate your images from the RTF files. We are
    sorry for the inconvenience.
