We have a mix environment of Windows 7/Vista with Adobe Reader 9.2 and Windows XP/2k with Adobe Reader 8.1.7. Documents including charts with patterns created with the option Save as PDF from Word 2007(SP2) look and print fine with Adobe Reader 8, but the same documents look and print the patterns a lot more compressed with Adobe Reader 9. All computers print to the same printers with the same print drivers (a windows print server). Attached is a sample PDF file. I've installed Adobe Reader 9.2 also on Win2k and WinXP computers with the same results, so the problem doesn't come from the OS.
Any idea on what's wrong with Adobe Reader 9? Is it a configuration problem or defaults changed in Adobe Reader 9?
