Subject: Re: A pdf rendition of a rtf table made with ODS RTF gives
interrupted inner and outer border lines
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
I don't have access to Distiller right now, but if I create PDF
directly from SAS (ODS PDF ...) I see more or less the same: some
lines appear thicker in Acrobat Reader then others, although they are
the same thickness (I don't get interrupted lines though).
I'd say this is an effect of pixelization. If I go to a larger zooming
factor the effect on the screen disappears. IMHO Acrobat Reader should
be a bit smarter in rendering the file, making sure that lines that
have the same thickness get the same width (in pixels) on screen.
No real solution, but I am afraid there is no solution on the SAS side
