Hello everyone,

I am attempting to create some product overviews in PDF format. I have a few questions that hopefully you will/can answer for me. I am using Adobe Acrobat 7 professional.

Issue #1 - I am an HTML guy so I figured I would build my layout using Dreamweaver then open up Acrobat and choose the "Create PDF from Webpage" option. However, when I do this the text does not appear clean (somewhat blurry) as it does in the webpage itself which is very undesirable.

Issue #2 - Since I could not get the above situation to work correctly I started creating my layout in Microsoft Word 2003. When I print to PDF the text is fine however some of the tables borders do not appear as they do in Microsoft Word. For example, the top and side borders appear correctly but the bottom border is twice as thick as the others. I have played with the table border options only to have the same outcome. Any ideas?

Issue #3 - When printing to PDF either from a webpage or from Microsoft Word the PDF always opens up at 118%. Is there a setting somewhere so that whoever opens the file will always have it open at 100% rather than having to resize the document once it is open?

Thank you for your much needed help!
