font after printing or saving is changed

Jun 24, 2013 7:06 AM



I am trying to get the font of my created document exactly the same after printing as a pdf or saving as a pdf.

For now my problem is - when I save the document (I tried out of word, acrobat, indesign) the font is displayed different and pixeled.


I have attached two screenshots to show what I mean.

I tried many fonts but most of them are displayed not like they looked before and all of them have these pixels.


What do I have to do?

Which font is the best displayed font after saving?

As you see, the font is displayed very different (nearly as bold font). And if you look at the small font you may see it's not as clear as the font of the original one.


Would be nice, if you could help me!

    Have you checked the font list in your PDF (ctrl-D>fonts)? I would guess that either you do not have display smoothing turned on in the preferences, or your fonts are Type 3 bitmap fonts. Can you post a sample of the PDF for us to look at?
