I'm building my resume from a template I found online for Adobe Illustrator. When I copy the line and use in somewhere else, then the line thickness increases automatically even though its the same line that is copied. When I'm moving the line around, then line thickness changes for different areas as I hold the line. It becomes thin for some part and thick in others like there's a mask that is thicking the line for a particular area. The line below education is copied from above one and used, but somehow it looks thick in exported pdf. enter image description here

  • Lines are only thin if they hit the exact pixel grid. You should print it to see it properly. Or you may have 2 lines on top of each other – joojaa Jun 30 '19 at 20:47
  • @joojaa there aren't two lines on the top of each other. That I have checked. I don't know about that pixel grid thing though. How do I check that? – prayansh ratan Jun 30 '19 at 20:49
  • If you zoom in it hsould change – joojaa Jun 30 '19 at 20:53
  • @joojaa when I zoom in they look similar but in exported pdf they aren't. Besides when I drag a line around it thickens in some regions. – prayansh ratan Jun 30 '19 at 20:56
  • There is no way to ensure that a PDF viewer renders the pixels the way you intend. If a person has a different kind of screen than you their alignment is different. Its the tradef you do when you draw with vectors. – joojaa Jun 30 '19 at 20:57
