All fonts appear to have a stroke or shadow on them after I finish typing.

Apr 3, 2013 8:36 PM

When typing fonts seem thin and normal, however, when I stop typing they appear to look bold and/or have a shadow.  Therefore PDF and jpg look pixelated after I export????


Also when in the document and I hit enter the font goes back to normal for a second or two but then changes back automatically.


See attached example.


Any suggestions appreciated as I'm about to smash my PC!InDesignFontError.jpg

    This is a known effect caused by having transparency on the page (in this case the drop shadow on the image above). It tends to show on screen and in low resolution printing, but not on press.

    That sounds like a plan.
