    Page Display Resolution

      Windows 7.  Illustrator CS5.  Acroabt Pro X

       

      An artist created a document in Illustrator which has embedded screenshots.  Screenshots are 72 ppi and not scaled.

       

      He sent me the AI file and I saved it from Illustrator as a PDF and then viewed in Acrobat.

       

      At 100% zoom, the page shows larger in PDF than in Illustrator.  Making the screenshots look rather blurry.

       

      After some exploring I found a setting for Page Display Resolution.  It was set to custom (I cant remember the ppi, but perhaps 110?).  My other choice was system setting (96 ppi).  That was too be as well.  So I changed it to 72 and now its fine.

       

      So I kinda understand where they are going with it.  However, this is a Program setting, right?  Not a document setting.  Is there any way to set something like this so that anyone who gets this PDF will see the images at the right resolution at 100% zoom?

       

      Maybe there is something else going on here that I dont get...

       

      Thanks
