PDF is for viewing and printing and has little need to be much beyond 300 DPI. I'll keep it short for now but that's the long and short reason.
I've just noticed that when I convert a document to a PDF, the pages become slightly compressed.
I took a Word document and converted it to a PDF using 1) Word's 'save as' function and 2) Paperport's Image printer. I then printed out all three versions. The version printed from Word was 'full' size while the two PDFs were somewhat (and identically) compressed.
Is there anywhere I can adjust this so the text in my PDFs is the same size as it is in the original document?
Thanks for your help,
