I recently watched a webinar on " Typography & Fonts Master Class for CorelDraw . At around the 1 hour mark someone asks if when you export to pdf and then view that pdf it looks like some of the text has thicker lines than it's supposed to be. The lady answering that question says to go into settings and uncheck the "increase the width of thin lines" which is there by default.
Please can you tell me where to find it?
This does not happen when the file is printed but it is annoying when sometimes my customers ask whats wrong with the text.
Perhaps they were referring to a setting in Adobe Acrobat? This screenshot is from Acrobat Pro DC:
The issue I am thinking about has to do with how Acrobat displays certain types of content on-screen; it's not changing the PDF file.
Have you checked to see if "Enhance thin lines" is an option in Reader?
One way to get around this is to convert text to curves before you export/publish to PDF.This will somehow prevent Reader from adding the extra width to "text" objects.FWIW, this effect can be seen also in PDFs from other programs, not only from CorelDraw.
