Re: Palatino font

Ok this is becoming more of a mystery.

I think this is no longer a Lyx/Latex issue so I am sorry for bugging the list with it but maybe someone has a solution.

I downloaded another free windows pdf viewer and it the font looks great. However I also tried it on adobe reader on a Unix system and another XP box.

Both showed the same messed up T and D characters. So it seems to be a problem with Adobe Reader, but given the fonts are embedded this seems odd.

Also given the majority use Adobe Reader this is clearly an issue!

Quoting Geoffrey Lloyd:


I am having issues with the palatino font. It prints beautifully but when viewed in Acrobat Reader it looks awful, as if it doesn't quite scale. Things look crunched an the letters are consistently the same shape. If I zoom in then it gets better but you can't view a document at 500%!!

I have T1 font encoding and am using the textcomp package. Interestingly disabling either of these makes no difference.

I attach a sample page from the pdf created with pdflatex

Any advice greatly appreciated as I like the printed output but also need to have an online version of the document that looks professional!


It shows up fine in KGostView and also in Acrobat Reader 7 (SuSE). I even tested
it on another machine (Fedora) and it appears all nice and shiny. I think you
have a case of missing fonts, which is not surprising when one uses Palatino,
which is beautiful, but nonetheless it is not as widely-suppored as Times, for
example. I think you can (should) publish with Palatino and not worry much.
