smooth text

Post by quant » Mon Jan 28, 2008 1:06 pm

When I view the same file in adobe and pdf-xchange, the one in adobe is sharper, darker, easier to read, while little bit blurry and greyish in pdf-xchange.
The difference is not big, but enough to make longer reading less exhaustive in adobe.

Can you see the difference?
Would it be possible to set a different level of "smoothing text" or maybe making a text darker?
It's not a big deal, maybe it's not worth bothering.

There is such option but it is not available via UI interface. You can try to change it via the registry. Under
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Tracker Software\PDFViewer\PageDisplay

please make DWORD value TextGamma with value in range from 250 to 8000 (default value 1000).

Does this still work?

I don't have a /PageDisplay key in the above registry location. If I add one (and the TextGamma item), the key gets deleted when I close the PDF viewer. I'm using PDF Xchange Viewer version 2.0 build 0036.

The portable version doesn't write any settings to the Windows registry for you to change — as I understand it, that's why it is portable.

I know what portable means. Maybe it could be possible to change something in the settings file (settings.dat ?).

For now there are no way to make dirrect editing settings stored into settings.dat file.
