    If a vector layer with a transparency set on the Display tab of its properties is above other layers then when the map is exported to PDF all the layers underneath are fused together.

    confirms the issue when it says "
    Layers that cause rasterization, such as transparent layers or layers that use a picture fill symbology, consolidate all the layers below them into a single 'Image' layer."

    I've tested at ArcGIS 10 and the problem is still present there.

     

    It seems to be an issue for a few other people:

    An FAQ which is possibly related suggests this may come in a later release ...

    Could that "later release" be ArcGIS 10.1, please?
