Callout Text Quality Poor in PDF

Postby garysamartino on Thu May 12, 2016 12:17 am

I know this topic has been brought up before, but the quality of callout text in Capture graphics is poor. Is there an anti-alias option that can be used to smooth out the text?

Also, I tried creating the graphic in Illustrator and saved it as an EPS. The callout looks great, but the bitmap screen shot looks muddled, like the JPEG compression quality setting is low, even though I have it set to Max in the target's PDF options. Is there a way to make the bitmap in the EPS file use the max quality setting?

Here is a screen shot of the Capture image (top) and the EPS image (bottom) from a PDF file.

Any help with this is much appreciated.

I very vaguely remember there being a problem with callouts having something to do with transparency settings. I can't remember in any detail, but that might be a direction you can follow to start with. Good luck!

Or could you use a different file format? All our graphics are .PNG rather than .JPG but I'm a bit rubbish at graphics so I don't know why or whether that would help you.
