Comment on adobe acrobat

Adobe Reader 8.x squases fonts of about 90% of the PDFs I tested, no matter whether they were created with Distiller, Quartz or OpenOffice. Also, font antialiasing seems borked for most fonts. The same applies to the Windows installations I tried out, so it seems to be an issue with the font render engine in Adobe Reader in general.

I definitely hope those issues will be addressed in the next version of Adobe Reader. Most of my contacts use it, and I don’t feel like explaining to them that the product sheet I just sent them doesn’t look shitty, it’s Adobe Reader.

Adobe Reader 7.x rendered those PDFs fine, I should mention.
