I have been working on this technical issue for a while and can't seem to get around it. :^( I am stroking text in Indesign, and exporting the file to a pdf. The pdf seems to convert the stroke to a vector that does not match the original stroke. Specifically, the inside of small, circular letters are messed up; e.g., the letters like "a," "o," and "b."
Below are two images. The first is when I exported the file to a PNG format, and the second is a screenshot of a PDF export. Is there any method to export to pdf without distortion that doesn't itself distort the text (like double layering or converting to outline)? If not, what is the best way to fix this?
I've uploaded the file here: Download. The issue also occurs with Calibri Bold, if you need a common font to test. The issue is present in: Mac OS Preview, Foxit PDF Viewer, and Chrome. There is no issue with Adobe Acrobat, but cross-platform support would be appreciated.
Thank you so much for your help! :^)
What the export is supposed to look like:
A distorted pdf. Please notice especially the "o"s in the title:
