To my knowledge there is no regular solution to this problem. I
often encounter it, and it doesn't bother me personally, but
my boss certainly doesn't like the feature... So when I prepare
'final' figures I usually copy them to the clipboard and save
them in Adobe Illustrator Format (I'm on a Macintosh) and
read the resulting file into Canvas 3.5.3 for post-processing.

It is obviously one of the aspects of Mathematica graphics that
should be improved.
