The PDF output of my LyX documents is rather pixelated as can be seen on the image. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    We need to be able to reproduce it in order to address the issue. Can you provide us with such information? – Werner Feb 14 '15 at 0:44

    This comes up from time to time. I don't understand why the problem is predominantly reported by Windows users (perhaps because MikTeX does not install cm-super by default?). In any case, do you have the cm-super package installed? In addition to @Werner 's comment, can you please post your log file (I think this will tell you whether you do not have a certain font and those a bitmap font was substituted for it). – scottkosty Feb 14 '15 at 1:49
  • I have edited the first post and added the log. The same thing happens when i use TeXmaker, so it might be a MikTeX problem. – EssexPN Feb 14 '15 at 13:00
  • Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. – Martin Schröder Feb 14 '15 at 13:09
  • Further reading: Latin Modern vs cm-super? – Heiko Oberdiek Feb 14 '15 at 13:23

It seems, as stated by @scottkosty, to be related to the font, probably Computer Modern. So, just change it.

In Lyx, go to Document > Settings... > Fonts and change it to something that suits you better, like TeX Gyre Bonum.
