    Font box mystery outlines

    peterpica Level 1

      Am using Bodoni 72 SvtyTwo ITC TT and get extremely light/fine hairlines above the characters, regardless of whether they're black or any other color. When I convert the characters to outlines, getting a 'block' for each line, I get the same fine hairlines, but now surrounding the lines of type, like a box rule effect.

       

      I've never seen this in my 30 years of typesetting on a Mac... Of course, you can't see when background is white, but whenever there's a contrasting background, the lines are there. Using InD CS6 on new iMac w/32g ram, Retina etc.

       

      Any ideas?

       

      I've attached a dump showing these.
