I have a multilingual (four languages) document which looks like this:



Деякий \emph{український} текст із \textbf{грецьким} словом \textgreek{paide\'{i}a} усередині.

Некоторый \emph{русский} текст с \textbf{греческим} словом \textgreek{paide\'{i}a} внутри.

Some \emph{English} text and with \textbf{Greek} word \textgreek{paide\'{i}a} inside.


with the font size specified (11pt). This code produces nice-looking English, Ukrainian and Russian words, but bad-looking Greek words. When I remove the font specification in the preamble ([11pt]) all four languages looks nice. But I'd like to save 11 pt text. What's the solution to this problem?

You probably have a really old TeX distribution where the Greek fonts are available as Type1 only at 10pt size, so at bigger size bitmaps are generated. What TeX distribution are you using? – egreg Feb 4 '13 at 15:13

Have you the string grmn1095.pfb near the end of the log file? – egreg Feb 4 '13 at 15:20
I have this near the end of the log file: <C:\Users\physicsworks\AppData\Local\MiKTeX\2.9\fonts\pk\ljfour\publiccbgreek\dp‌​i600\grmn1095.pk>{D:/install/MiKTeX 2.9/fonts/enc/dvips/cm-super/cm-s uper-t2a.enc}<D:/install/MiKTeX 2.9/fonts/type1/public/amsfonts/cm/cmr10.pfb><D :/install/MiKTeX 2.9/fonts/type1/public/cm-super/sfbx1095.pfb><D:/install/MiKTe X 2.9/fonts/type1/public/cm-super/sfrm1095.pfb><D:/install/MiKTeX 2.9/fonts/typ e1/public/cm-super/sfti1095.pfb> – Physicsworks Feb 4 '13 at 15:25
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a bug in the package management of MiKTeX, already reported but not solved. Manually installing the Type 1 fonts solves the issue. – egreg Jul 6 '13 at 21:58
