ADOBE READER DISTORTS DOCUMENTS

Prior to latest versions of Reader, adobe has faithfully preserved formatting and font of all documents in .pdf. Now ALL of my .pdf documents are distorted ... even documents I have had for years.

what is going on?

Look under Edit - Preferences - Page Display. What settings are selected in the Resolution and Rendering sections?

In what way, exactly?


Gilad D (try67)   

it is as though the resolution is 1/10th of normal. the font is light, pictures are pixilated, nothing is sharp. I have been using adobe at home and through work, since it first came out and have never had this kind of problem. I mean, heck, the whole point of Adobe reader is to faithfully render a document on any paltform... and it's not doing that for me.

I had this problem too, Acrobat suddenly made all my document fonts look like disjointed squares. I tried Edit -> Page Display -> Smooth Text, Rendering for Monitor (all ticked) -> Page Content and Information (ticked Use Smooth Zooming). After that, all PDF documents were back to their original state!
