Pain in the PDF!!

Discussion in 'Adobe Forum:' started by clarke creative, May 19, 2011.

  1. Hi Guys,

    Can anyone help me with a problem i having when converting a illustrator file into PDF?

    I have drawn a garden showroom plan, in the style of a garden designer very sketchy, in illustrator with a lot of line detail on, i have these line a 0.001pt because the document for the client is A4. The problem is when i convert my file to the PDF all lines appear at least twice as thick as the appear in illustrator and the document them looks nothing like i have designed and really congested. I am using CS5 and have adobe acrobat pro to view the document in.

    Any help is massively appreciated.

    Cheers

    Have you tried exporting it as a jpeg or as a tiff and seeing if it still does it then? Not ideal but it might work

    Have you tried printing it rather than just viewing on screen? PDFs often show up thicker lines etc that aren't there on screen

    I'll bet once it's printed it will look fine, lines of PDFs on screen do funny things for me all the time, printed out they look fine. Two L's nest to each other in Futura look especially bad on a on-screen PDF.

    Don't worry, outlined uprights such as 'l's and 'i's look fat. They'll print fine :)

    What happens when you zoom in and out?
