I have recently noticed that the on-screen look of documents generated by PDF Creator is different when compared to those generated by tools like Acrobat and the Microsoft "Save As PDF" plugin.
Take for example the following two files:
Both were generated from Word 2007 on a PC using the PDFCreator printer driver and the Adobe Acrobat printer driver respectively.
When these files are opened using Acrobat Reader, the Calibri font embedded in them displays slightly differently. The PDFCreator version looks lighter and less crisp in comparison to the Adobe Acrobat version.
I'm wondering if someone understands why this is the case and whether something can be done to "crisp up" the PDFCreator generated file.
I did notice that the font encodings are different between the two PDF files linked above. The Acrobat file includes the Calibri font as two subsets, encoded with Identity-H and ANSI. the PDFCreator file contains the Calibri font as one subset, encoded as "Custom".
