Squares in pattern when generating PDF

Question
The dots in the PDF is displayed as squares, they are not round. Will this be a problem when printing the pattern?

Answer
No. The dots in the PDF appear as squares instead of round dots since we use bitmap/imagemask instead of a font when the output format is PDF.

This solution allows for faster previews of PDF files on the computer, as the solution will have the pattern rendered much faster. The bitmap/imagemask pattern makes the conversion and printing of PDFs smoother.

The printed dots should be the same as before, since also round dots will be converted to squares in the printers RIP. Dotgain in the print process will make the squared dots appear as round when printed.
