    PDF Export Font Thickness Issues


      Hi everyone,


      it has been a few days that I am trying to figure this out, and I have searched the web quite a bit trying to find an answer, without success so far.


      Long story made short, check this PDF that I exported with Indesign :


      I use the following font :



      Problem :

      The font thickness shows differently on several pages :

      - it displays correctly on pages 1, 2, 5, 6 and 8

      - it displays too thin on pages 3, 4 and 7


      Observations :

      - the font shows correctly on every page when printing the document from the PDF.

      - when exporting to Acrobat 4 (PDF 1.3), the text shows properly on every page, but then appears a white outline around every PNG image inserted, so that just solves one problem to bring another one up.


      Idea (?) :

      I think the problem might come from a tiny black outline around the letters that gets "blended" with the darker image backgrounds, as compared to lighter images where that outline makes the text more visible. However, this is pure speculation and I have no idea where the problem is coming from.


      If anyone can help me on this, I would be greatly appreciative Thanks for your help !


      Best regards.
