I have a problem:

In my thesis I added some figures via:


My problem is, that the internal PDF-Viewer (I use TexMaker V4.1.1 under Debian Wheezy x64) displays the figures much, much clearer than any external PDF-Viewer.. But I am opening the same (!) file.

The following link shows a screenshot. On the left side one can see the internal Viewer from TexMaker and on the right side my external. http://i.imgur.com/Apia4fx.png

Thank you in advance!

Edit: What I have tried so far:

  • As suggested here I installed cm-super. But it didn't change anything. (This might not have been the right approach.. I mean the fonts look fine, it's just the figures. But I wanted to try it anyway.)

  • Also this solution didn't bring any changes...

    Your pictures are bitmaps (.png) and so fonts doesn't matter. Recreate your pictures in a better quality (eg. as vector graphics). – Ulrike Fischer Jan 29 '14 at 11:14

    It seems that Texmaker's viewers doesn't do antialiasing, while the external viewer does. – egreg Jan 29 '14 at 14:00
  • Thank you both! Thank you Ulrike, your workaround worked fine for me! And thanks egreg for pointing out the reason for the differences between those two appearances. – Stephan Jan 29 '14 at 14:58

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it was simply about a difference between viewer renderings. – Paul Gessler Feb 21 '15 at 15:06
