Crisp PDF's in QPDFView on High-Resolution Screens

If you are using QPDFView (the default PDF reader on PantherX) on a high resolution screen, you’re likely suffering from PDF’s that look like the anti-aliasing is not working. Fortunately there’s an easy fix for this.

  1. Open QPDFView
  2. Look for “Edit” > “Settings”
  3. Go to “Graphics” and under “General” look for “Use device pixel ratio”

This makes a day and night difference. See for yourself:
