hillshade makes my contour go raster!
in my project (a topo map) i'd like to put contour lines UNDER the hillshade in the display order, so that the contour colour is darker when the hillshade is darker (colours match better in this way). but if i put my contour below the hillshade, when exporting to pdf the contour looks like a raster level (visible pixel when zoomed). i'm attaching an example file for better understanding. is there a workaround in the pdf export options, or a way to make contour darker when the background is darker?
Mapping Center Answer:
There is a known issue with printing or exporting layers that are rasterized on output. Layers become rasterized on output when they have been set with a percentage of transparency, or when they are below layers that are transparent, contain picture symbology or raster datasets.
The workaround is to remove the transparency or elevate the contour layer so that it is above any other transparent layer, picture marker symbolized layer or raster dataset layer.
