    Hello community,

    today's problem is as follows: While reading text-PDFs, which consist only of text, on my 15'' rMBP, it usually happens that the text is not properly loaded. Sometimes it's just really blurry; sometimes the letters are cut off; and sometimes they are really pixelated.

    Usually it suffices to mark the text (either by selectively marking or just pressing CMD+a), but this is really annoying.

    Anyone else having the same observation?

    Best

    Are these scanned text PDFs? I read a lot of PDFs in Previw without any problems on my rMBP...

    No problems here either... is it scanned text? Maybe OCR with clearscan?

    Thanks for the answers!

    No, it's not about scanned PDFs (they are displayed fine). It's about PDFs of, for instance, word-documents or the like or websites.
