Topic: Problem with PDF Line Thickness
Conf: (P-PDF) Beginners, Msg: 79540

I'm currently using Pagemaker 6.5 to create documents, which are then exported as PDF's.

Unfortunately, when the exported PDF is printed, the line thickness of the horizontal rules varies anywhere from .5 points to maybe a couple of points in thickness -- even though they're all identical in the original document.

The line thickness works fine when printing directly from Pagemaker 6.5. This is all on a Mac G4/dual 1-gig processors, 1 gig of RAM, running OS 9.2 (on top of OSX 10.2.3), standard extensions, going to an HP 4050 printer.

Anybody have any suggestions on how I can tame the PDF's? Is there some kind of Distiller or Acrobat setting I can use that will more-accurately duplicate the way the lines look in the original file?

In the meantime, I'm on the fast track to (reluctantly) switchover to InDesign, so I'm hoping maybe that will help.
