I follow below mentioned method to convert a pdf document.

latex filename.tex then convert dvi to ps dvips filename.ps

I am using some required print distiller setting to convert a PDF document.

My problem is table rules like toprule bottomrule all of them to be converted bitmap images

Please see the below mentioned pitstop report figures.enter image description here

See the Warning error. This error should be avoided.

Current output all lines to be converted into bitmap images. But my required output is all lines to be converted in to strokes.

Any option is used to convert during the conversion process dvips filename.dvi command. Please advice.

  • Is there a reason why you don't compile with pdflatex? – Bernard Feb 24 '16 at 12:56
  • dvips has -X and -Y command line options to specify horizontal and vertical resolution, you could try setting those to a bigger number than preflight is complaining about – David Carlisle Feb 24 '16 at 12:57
  • Specific pdf setting is provided. I should used to create the specific settings version PDF. By default pdflatex is not supported this settings. So i create the ps and then pdf is doing specific distiller settings. – Vetri Feb 24 '16 at 13:16
  • If i used pdflatex i am not getting Updated version acrobat XI pdfs. Please advice – Vetri Feb 24 '16 at 13:20

Set a very high resolution with -D option, e.g.

dvips -D 4000 filename.dvi 

default is 600. You can change default resolution in config.ps file.
