I'm working on a poster (which needs to be delivered

attempting to export it as pdf I realized that some transparency was lost.
After quite some time spent trying to figure it out, it turns out that it's
most likely because of clipping. Transparent objects in a clipped group
loose their transparency when exported, while they keep it if their group is
not clipped (e.g. when I ungroup the clipped group).
Please see the file attached. Try to export it as pdf, with all defaults.
You should see that the circles on the main map at the top are transparent,
while those who belong to a group that was clipped (for instance in the
zoomed map of Europe at the top, or in both maps at the bottom).
I exported your file with Inkscape version 0.92pre1 r15009 and I don't
notice any difference. Since it may be me not seeing the problem, I
attach the PDF export, hoping it could help you.
