Can you give us a piece of advice?
We have so far printed our booklets (black/white, layout: Winword 95)
the "old-fashioned way" using a Postscript-printer driver and having
a company doing films. Everything was fine, the results have been
Now we've switched to PDF and that's where the trouble starts:
Screenshots sometimes get "anti-aliasing" effects, they do not
look sharp any more. The funny thing is: only some of the images look
washed out, most pictures are fine, however.
Furthermore some font-properties seem to have get lost. I know
that each font has at least 4 cuts (I don't know the right word). But
only "standard" Times, Helvetica and Courier show, the properties
italics or bold, however, look awful.
We are using Acrobat 4 and 5 and Windows 2000. We would
like to keep Winword 95 as our "layout-program". Yes, we do
check our PDF-files beforehand, but on our computers they look fine.
Do you have any idea what to keep in mind? Do we need some
additional software or special Type 1 fonts?
Thanks for your help!
