Preview displaying blurry txt in PDF

Posted:
in Mac Software edited January 2014
I am having issues opening PDF in preview. Sometimes the txt comes through blurry making it unreadable. When I open the PDF file in Adobe Reader its views perfectly, so its just in preview this is happening. Now for myself it is not an issue as I just set my default PDF viewer to Adobe Reader but we have clients that use MACs and we may loose some business if the presentation is up to scratch.



Is there a way that I can make the PDF view properly in Preview. I have the original presentation so if I need to convert it differently then I can.



Thanks for your help

    Gee, my eyesight is always blurry. In my case though, Preview looks better than Adobe Reader. In either case, set the view at 100% or actual size. That often makes it better.

    That depends on how you are converting your files. If you are doing your PDFs correctly, then there should be no blurriness. By correctly, I mean that you should print your presentation files to PostScript or PDF. The text in your source files should be editable. OTOH, if you are rasterizing your files prior to making the conversion, then you can expect to have problems.
