Homework Help: Latex Question #2

  1. Aug 19, 2004 #1
    okay, a few months ago i posted a question on how to convert my txt files into a pdf file. The people who responded were VERY helpful, but recently i purchased a new computer and i transferred over the miktex program and the work i had done on my old computer. The problem is, when i convert txt files into pdf files with my new computer, the font is really blurry when i open acrobat. Any ideas what can be causing this? i'm assuming its something to do in the settings of acrobat's fonts...but who knows...thanks a bunch!

    I'm not that familiar with the whole issue.
    I got the above link and the ones below by googling...

    A few years ago, I observed this blurriness when converting from tex to dvi to pdf. (I don't convert txt to pdf.)
    I'm not sure if it was an updated MikTeX package or Ghostscript/GSview postscript utilities that resolved my problems.

    How does your pdf file look in gsview?
