    Comparing version 10:02, 5 Aug 2011 by matt with version 10:11, 5 Aug 2011 by matt.

    Version from 10:02, 5 Aug 2011

    It's always bugged me that most maps in Adobe Reader turn our carefully selected colours and lineweights, optimised for best print quality, into a mishmash of spaghetti lines when viewed. Today I discovered a really simply fix: turn off "Enhance thin lines" preference, and that's it. (Now if only there were some way we could embed that hint into the pdf file itself, and then we wouldn't need to direct people to this page, or perhaps step on the toes of other documents that need thin lines enhanced.)
