Invisible elements exported in PDF file

When pedal lines are turned gray, they are tough exported in pdf file if they are continued under the next staff below. They stay gray in the created pdf file. See attachement.

What version of MsueScore, and what OS? And can you attach the actual score you are having problems with, and precise steps to reproduce the problem? I tried using a build of 2.0.3 and it worked as expected for me.

2.0.2. Windows XP SP3. Score fragment attached. Every score have the same problem with pedal lines. Steps are described. Lines are turned invisible in Inspector (become gray), but are printed in pdf.
Where I can take 2.0.3? Software page shows only 2.0.2 version, and updates check feature answers that there are no updates. :/

2.0.3 is still in development, but you can download nightly builds for testing purposes using the Download link in the menu at right of this page.

I can't reproduce your issue using either 2.0.2 or 2.0.3 on Linux (Ubuntu). Here are the steps I am following:

1) load score
2) File / Export
3) make sure PDF is selected as file type
4) save

When I follow those steps, the PDF I get has no pedal lines.

Is there something you are doing differently than this? It is possible this is some Windows XP-specific bug. That OS is, of course, no longer supported even by Microsoft, so it isn't all that surprising there might be bugs that affect XP only due to issues with third party libraries we rely on that don't support XP well. Can anyone else verify if they can reproduce this on XP (or any other system)?

And what I have in pdf... The most astonishing is that only breaks (on the second staff) of pedal lines are exporting in pdf! I doubt that Acrobat does that, it should be MS 2.0.2.
None of any other invisible lines are exported!

To be clear: you are following the exact steps I listed? Using Acrobat to generate PDF's form MuseScore isn't really supported and often doesn't work.

Oh, I didn't have in mind that I could use Acrobat to create a file from MS! Exactly the same 4 steps. And if I have no breaks in pedal lines I didn't see the bug.
