Publisher is showing blurry drawings via WebParts?


Are you seeing your line weight and fonts distorted when viewing a drawing through Publisher (client VPR)?

The reason this happens is due to how Publisher renders drawing files on the publishing server. It converts it into a Vector image (DPR (Digital Print Rendition) and when the file is zoomed in it starts getting  distorted. Think of a .jpeg image when you zoom so far you start to see the pixels (same concept)
