I have a very detailed vector map I want to export from QGIS (2.18.3) into Illustrator. Unfortunately, it's having some problems:
- Print Composer > Save as SVG errors out, yielding an invalid SVG (and mangles the print composer as well, so I can't use it again for anything & have to make a new one). The error is "std::bad_alloc"
- Print Composer > Save as PDF succeeds, but when I open the PDF in Illustrator a significant number of polygons are mangled (it looks ok in Mac Preview)
- Print Composer > Print > Save as PDF (i.e. the system PDF generator) produces a smaller file than the QGIS save as PDF, but with similar mangled polygons.
Do I have any other feasible options for getting my lovely map out of QGIS in a vector format? Is there a way I can fix up my file in QGIS so its export functions do not crash?
