How much of the graphics display and filters work in FM 2022?

I am getting a little annoyed with the display and processing of graphics in FM 2022 and decided to do a more systematic test. So this is the display of a selection of imported graphics in FM2022:


As can be seen the original graphic - which is transparant and resides in the middle of a square bounding box, is diplayed with a white background in all iterations exept png. Jpg files do not support transparancy, so that display is correct. All the others are varying degrees of incorrect with the svg version taking the prize.


Above is what comes out when distilled and saved as print pdf. As can be seen SVG is completely wrong and so is the PNG.

The file formats and standards I have used in this test are the most common file formats in the graphics industry and I would expect both preview and rendering to work. In this test it only jpg which truly works in both preview and pdf.
