You are viewing at 129% try viewing at 100% to get a more accurate preview


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

That should not effect it. I have no issues on the Windows version. It should still retain the integrity of the font. It is not a low-res image.

Both macOS and Windows should give you the same result if viewing at the same zoom.

When you say Windows isn't affected, are you opening the same document and viewing it at 129%?

We could do with the document and I can test it on both machines using the same settings.

But as carl123 says, anything in a raster view past 100% view will start to show jaggies.

Chris in any case why is the font is treated as a low-res image and loses its visual quality? Is this common practice?

The text is vector, but the display in Photo is always a raster-based display (unlike Designer, which offers two viewing modes).

Since you will normally produce (export) a raster-based image from Photo, the view when you zoom in will essentially show you what would happen if a user zooms in with your raster-based export.

Thanks Walt! That now makes total sense. In fact Chris was right in saying on both OSes the behaviour was the same. I was thinking of Designer. I wish Photo would be the same as the designer. Would be very helpful on occasions when you have to work in zoomed out mode.

Thanks again for the clarification Walt.
