Graphics bloat after page dimensions change

Jan 25, 2013 12:17 PM

(FM10 on Win7x64)


I faintly recall reading a similar symptom elsewhere in the forum, but unfortunately I don't recall where.


Before changing page dimensions from USL to A4, references graphics (.pdf, .png, .gif), a file prints well, with fine lines.


After changing page dimensions, in FM, PDF Setup, and Distiller, the lines and text in the graphics bloat: thicker, slightly fuzzy. Even when I change page dimensions back to the original USL, the graphics are bloated.


Text from the FM file looks equally good in both cases, so this appears to be something that pertains only to the graphics.


Print dialog settings in Acrobat do not appear to change the behavior. I can specify Actual Size or Fit and get the same result.


Any thoughts?

    Are you seeing this bloat in the FM file or just the resulting PDF file? Is this happening for all imported graphics? Are the graphics raster or vector and what formats? Were the exact same joboptions used?


    Could you please post before & after screen captures illustrrating this phenomena.
