Exporting map to graphics format --> Weird spikes in hatched polygons

Hi guys,

I'm having problems with the export of a map which has hatched polygons in them. I'm not sure if this is the right forum, so if not, please show me in the right direction.

The problem: I'm having hatched polygons (45°) in my map which seem normal in data and layout view. As soon as I export the map to a graphics format (tried tiff and svg so far) weird spikes appear on them (see attached file). I tried different angles and it only disappears with completely horizontal or vertical lines. I also tried different sizes of stripes with different offsets, with the same result. The symbol itself always consists of a underlaying 'simple fill symbol' and on overlaying 'line fill symbol'.

Does any of you had similar problems or can offer a solution? Help would be very much appreciated.

Thank you, Uwe
