10. Text and Monochrome Images in PDF Files Are Blurry
Reader includes an option to smooth the edges (i.e., anti-alias) of text and
monochrome images. Anti-aliasing improves the display of jagged or bitmap
images by smoothing the edges of type and graphics. The Smooth Text and
Monochrome Images option in Reader uses anti-alias technology to enhance the
display of PDF files. When a PDF contains thin or italic fonts,
anti-aliasing may make text formatted with those fonts appear blurry. To
disable Reader's anti-aliasing feature:

1. Choose File > Preferences > General.
2. In the General Preferences dialog box, deselect the Smooth Text and
Monochrome Images option, then click OK.
