    Contour uncontrollable


      Hey I got a problem in my recent project.

      In InDesign you can barely see a difference in the contour, even though the contour is set to 0 pt.

      But when I export it, you can see that some lines are at least on 0,5 pt. I want it like the first two lines.





      I can not find any way to control the contour here. The only method working now is copying a correct working sentence and

      change the words. But I got this problem on 150 Pages :/

      Any Ideas?

          Do you mean the underline? Or do you talk about something else?

          Have you defined the paragraph style as it should be?

          Are the lines only on Screen a Problem, as it would be always with lines thinner than 1px on Screen. Or on print?

            I think there may be two different things going on here.


            First is the known "emboldening" effect on type that occurs when you add transparency to a page (visible onscreen and in low resolution printing), and second may the the Enhance Thin Lines option in Acrobat or Reader.

              I just test printed on page heavily effected by the emboldening, and infact the printed page was without any

              fat words. But its not in correlation to the transparency because not everything is affected.

              Thank you for the quick response!
