Pixelated PDF output

Postby EssexPN » Sat Feb 14, 2015 2:32 am


When I create a document int LyX and export it to pdf the output is rather pixelated and scalable vector.

does anyone know how i can fix this?

Welcome to the forum!

It seems that you are using a bitmap font, not a vector font. The latter would be scalable without getting pixelated.

If you use the standard font, you could fix that by simply installing the package cm-super with the underlying TeX installation.

If you do not want to change the font (e.g. defined by a template). Install cm-super as written earlier: (do not edit the tex-file)

Return to “LyX”
