I'm glad that you could make this handler
works for you. :-))

Now that you mentioned this, i remember that 
ScreenArt v2 does not gives a name to every graphic
it creates, so i was not aware about this limitation.
Thanks a lot for really testing this handler! :-))

no, it must not translate. This fill is a
background pattern, a tiling bitmap inside the region
of the graphic. I do not think that Adobe ilustrator
v7 could support tiling bitmap fills. Flash format
does supports this kind of fills. I'm not sure if
pdf supports bitmap fills.

By the way, 
Does this entusiasm enough the developers 
of this list to collaborate in the creation
of a pdf export handler?

Thanks a lot for your interest, Jim :-))
