pdf: more details visible in LOW resolution, or adobe-bug ?

Hello pdf specialists !

my pdf, in 77% size display, shows me a detail which disappears when I magnify to 1600% size display. - I would expect the reverse behaviour: with low resolution, I would expect no details, and with high resolution, I would expect to see every little detail of a drawing.

* Please explain this strange behaviour of the adobe reader. This is the main question.
* When I send the pdf to a paper printer, will I get a fuzzy line or a clear line, and what does it depend on ?

Best regards, Sonja

Hi D4N1,

* I used Adobe reader V 8.2.6. Now I upgraded to Adobe reader  X (10.1.0), and I still have the same behaviour. So I do not believe the problem is solved in Adobe Reader 9.
* yes, I have printed the ppt as pdf, using eDocPrint pro. I do not have your "Adobe PDF" printer. I guess it would be expensive.

Best regards, Sonja

Hi D4N1,

I see now that even on the 1600%-Size display, the ugly fuzzy edge is visible, although less clear than in the 100%-size display.

So, I am not sure is it a problem of the adobe READER, or rather a problem of the conversion ppt to adobe or a problem of the display inside powerpoint, or all of the above.

printing as pdf: how can I install a pdf printer from ADOBE ? Is yours really from ADOBE, or is it rather a clone ? As far as I understand the adobe website
https://www.acrobat.com/createpdf/en/pricing.html ,
that's how they make money: 10$ a month.

Best regards. Sonja
