Pages with figures are Bold.

Postby Frustrated » Tue Jan 26, 2010 6:45 am


I have a problem.

I am using miktex 2.8 and texniccenter.

These are the packages I am using:
  1. \documentclass[12pt]{article}
  2. \usepackage{amscd, amssymb, amsmath, verbatim, pxfonts, setspace}
  3. \usepackage{rotating}
  4. \usepackage{natbib}
  5. \usepackage{appendix}
  6. \usepackage{rotating}
  7. \usepackage{graphicx}
  8. \usepackage[left=1.0in, right=1.0in, top=1.0in, bottom=1.0in]{geometry}
  9. \usepackage{mathrsfs}
  10. \usepackage{textcomp}

I am outputting PDFs

Whenever I have inserted a picture, the text on the page it appears on in the output (Adobe Reader 9.3) is bold. If I remove any of the figures to a different section of the document, the new page that contains them is bold. I have reinstalled miktex and texniccenter, in that order. Finally, this is the first problem I have had with LaTeX I couldn't fix with three hours of browsing and troubleshooting solutions. This problem did not exist until today, though I have made many documents.

I am a college senior working on a thesis project and although this seems minor in the big scheme of things, I would really like the final output to look as professional as I had hoped it would. If anyone has any ideas please respond here.

Thanks to all that read this,

I think it would help to see the code for the figures which are causing the problem. It's hard to tell what the problem could be with what you've included here. Try to create a complete minimal example that actually shows the problem.

You are loading the "rotating" package twice, which you shouldn't do, but I doubt that's the cause of your problem.

This is usually caused by alpha channels in included graphics.

Remove the alpha channel in the included graphics (something I cannot help you with)
