I'm wondering if it is possible to change evince font rendering and make it render fonts like Adobe Acrobat Reader.

The Evince issues are infamous. From other fora, I have picked up the following suggestions: - Use xpdf instead - Use okular, if you can put up with KDE dependencies –  Dana Brandt Dec 29 '13 at 15:06
qpdfview supports font anti-aliasing, it is possible to have customized Setting > Graphics > PDF. –  Sneetsher Mar 21 at 9:17
When you say "Like Adobe Acrobat Reader"; it doesn't explain the problem. Can you at least provide screenshots to compare? –  RolandiXor Apr 16 at 6:30
