When I make a pdf-file from my illustrator-file it looks like this!!!

The fine lines get all black and thick and so does all the letters "l"

 

I often send large pdf-files to a companion to use for presentation

and it´s very important thar the pdf-file look nice.

I would be so greatful if anyone could help.

    I think there is not a great deal you can do about this.

    If you view your pdf file at maximum zoom in you will see that there is nothing really wrong with it.

    It is really just a question of pdf’s lousy preview at 100% zoom.

    I know and you know :-)

    People have complained about pdf’s preview before, especially with type where lower case sans serif ls get fat (like yours do).

    As far as I know the problem hasn’t been resolved unless there’s a new version of Acrobat out there that I haven’t heard of.

    There is a preference in Acrobat to enhance thin lines (under page display) try turning that off if it's on, that might help. Also, fonts display much better if your type is not outlined.

    In addition to what Steve and you yourself and Luke said, why not tell the customer to zoom in to see how it really is?

    And another problem is that the Acrobat Enhance Thin Lines is a user preference.
