    Hi guys,

    The Preview in El Capitan is not as sharp as in Mavericks. Anyone can confirm whether this is still bugs in 10.11.3?

    Thanks.

    It's still here. I press zoom in and then zoom to fit to correct it. Quite annoying! Just adjust the zoom level and it should refocus

    If I compare with the Acrobat or Mavericks' Preview, the fonts are always more blurry. You can get a bit clear by changing the zoom, but still less sharp. I read a lot of pdf therefore this bug really affecting my reading experience.

    Btw, thank you for the confirmation

    under the preferences panel there is also a setting on the bottom of the general section called:

    use lcd font smoothing when available.... unclick this and notice how ur fonts are no longer as bright and in a type of bold? that has helped save my eyes and the blurryness numerous amounts of time....
