    PDF file lines aren't vectors but rectangles.

    Dahzee

      I have a PDF file which has been produced in Indesign (it may originally have been created in Illustrator or Photoshop).

       

      On opening the PDF most of the vector parts of the file are not true lines but seem to be rectangles or the outer edges of a line in this particular case 0.105mm's apart.

       

      I have noticed this before with PDF's and it is very frustrating.

       

      I am trying to create a dieline from these files and if I tried to create a cutting die from this, the laser would create an unholy mess when it tried to burn.

       

      Is there some kind of setting that makes sure the PDF is created with true vector lines?

       

      If anyone could shed some light on this I would be most grateful.

       

      Many Thanks in  advance,
