I can't figure this out.
I made a nice flyer for my company with the intention of printing it on a Laser printer.
I used a Boxed Art PSD file. It looks fantastic. So I thought I should save it as a PDF file to share with other employees.
I selected save as PDF, High quality print, I selected embed all fonts. The PDF file automatically opens and it looks great. See attached image - on the left. I closed the PDF file. Then reopened it and I get HORRIBLE FUZZY FONTS.
Why in world would it look great in the PDF until I close it? I didn't resave it or anything. Wierd.
I've searched all over Adobe Forums looking for the answer .... there are lots of posts about CS4 problems like this ... but I use all CS5 and can't find switches for vector fonts or whatever.
I'm not sure what other information I should provide to you to hopefully get some help. :)
I'd be more than happy to reset all my PS and Acrobat settings to all default if that would fix it.
I'll try to find a way to copy and post all the "settings" Adobe asks for.
Oh - and I've tried simply printing to PDF directly. Same issue.
I have (in addition to a terrible headache):
Adobe Acrobat Pro 9 - I checked and no updates available.
Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended
My Laptop is:
