I know this has been posted a thousand times before, but it's an issue I come across at least once a week and it's driving me bonkers!!
Anytime I mask an image and export as a pdf, it shows up distorted and tiled. This happens in Preview and Safari, not Acrobat. I've asked my clients to open in Acrobat, but they don't have that, and keep opening it in Preview. I can't keep telling every client which apps to use every time I send them something.
My workaround is to export from XD as flat pngs, and them combine all those pngs into one pdf with Acrobat. It's a huge waste of time. I read earlier that this is an Apple issue, but is there any way that the export could be fixed on XD's end? Sharing PDFs is a major part of my workflow:(
