After installing Mavericks, I noticed that pdf texts are blurry in Preview. Anyone faced with the same behaviour?

It's either the PDF itself, or you're not at exactly 100% zoom.

Unfortunately every pdf I tried has the problem. It also does not seem to be related with zoom levels. Interestingly the problem does not occur if a pdf is opened in safari.

If you've obtained Mavericks through the usual channels -- Apple Developer or Apple Seed, then you should have methods of informing Apple about this.

Not fixed on DP4.

Yep, definitely not fixed in DP4. It seems like if I zoom just right sometimes, part of the view is blurry, and other parts aren't.

Had this problem too. Just installed DP5 and the PDFs don't look blurry anymore. I compared to safari just to make sure, and preview.app looks the same.

I confirm it. Now I can finally stop using the slow and clunky, although sharp and clear :D, Adobe Reader.

To me it looks like it is better, but only 90% fixed. There still some instances where the text is blurry, possibly if i zoom while the PDF is still rendering from the previous zoom operation.

In any case, it's definitely an improvement.
