Poor PDF quality
« on: July 16, 2012, 01:18:30 am »
I'm new with this thing, and it's one problem after the next. Now I have bad quality pdf output and I can't sort out what the issue is. I tried making a new page with no formatting, and it's still very bad. Here's what my output looks like.

I may have found the reason: the typed document was created in MS Word. ODF had better output.

@nermander: he never said that he/she was using scribus :-)

@flamingpanties, jokes aside, it looks like you are not creating your pdf with file > export > export to pdf...

if you need more help, you should provide more information on what you did :-)

ciao

I'm about to publish a journal in PDF exported from Scribus.  How can I maximize quality?  The letters seem to be losing someof the white space between them.
