[GRASS-user] problems with ps.map outputs

Wow! Inkscape does (almost) wonders. Last time I tried it there were
more issues that benefits. Now (0.46-2, Debian testing) it imports a
complex QGIS-generated PDF flawlessly treating text as text (cool!),
raster as raster and vector as vector, let's me edit it just like a
normal hybrid graphics file. I can export it back to PDF after edits -
with a glitch that transparent rasters parts (those which were null in
QGIS, thus transparent in it's PDF output) now are white in the new PDF,
and some newly added transparent vector objects are rendered wrong in
Evince, but OK in Adobe Reader. Anyway if I stick to SVG format for
saving any changes after importing the original PDF to Inkscape - no
problems whatsover.

(Pitty that PostScript import does not work too well though.)

Inkscape has improved *a lot*. Glad you guys made me try it again. Thanks.
