Evince blurs PDFs by default (see comparison image). Is there a way to disable this behavior? Bonus points for a solution that works on a per-document basis.

  • Can you post an example PDF that has this issue? Preferably the PDF you show above. – user4124 Jul 6 '11 at 7:28

    Can you add evince and poppler version to your question? (You can check it on Evince: Help->About). – sergio91pt Jul 6 '11 at 9:14
  • @user4124: Any PDF will demonstrate what I am talking about. @sergio92pt: Version 2.32.0. – MarkovCh1 Jul 6 '11 at 11:39

    What are your settings in Appearance->Fonts->Rendering? Also, what is your "other viewer"? On the same OS? – Christoph Jul 20 '11 at 12:09

What are your settings in Appearance->Fonts->Rendering? This may be an OS setting, not the reader's fault.

OP's answer: Disabling "sub-pixel rendering" in Appearance -> Fonts -> Rendering "fixes" the blur.

  • I don't see that setting. I'm using GNOME Document Viewer 3.26.0. Do you know how to do it nowadays? – Limited Atonement Mar 21 '18 at 11:37
  • No, sorry, I don't. – Christoph Mar 22 '18 at 8:21
