Metafile-Image not rendered correctly in PDF Output

Hi there,

I ran into a problem with PDF output through ppPDFDevice when using a Metafile within a Report.

The used Metafile is generated through Steema TeeChart component and then loaded into the ppImage control froma TMetaFile object. In print preview everything looks fine, but in the PDF document the text in point markers of a chart series on the bottom most part of the chart is placed out of its surrounding rectangle. The text is vertically aligned.

Horizontal text seems to work well.

If you need any further information please let me know.

    Hi Nico,

    thanks for taking action so fast. It looks good now for the text. Alas the shadow rectangle is now out of place. I've attached a link to a new PDF-document displaying the issue.
