UNDERSTANDING FONTS

One of the greatest advantages of using PDF files for proofing, as opposed to JPEGs, is that text remains as editable text and it never loses its crispness. This is of special importance when you are working across different platforms (Mac/Windows/Linux) and need to make sure that text in a file looks right every time.

As explained in Chapter 42, “Working in a PDF in Acrobat,” Acrobat makes a copy of the font file, embeds it within the PDF itself, and uses its own rendering engine to display text with it. This ensures that text will always render and print as text, with crisp edges and no pixelation.
