Question: Words not clear in presentation pdf preview full mode.

When I open a pdf presentation using preview in full mode, words are not clear for few seconds and then it becomes clear. This happens at each animation step.

I am facing this problem in all my pdf presentations.

The first image attached show that the contents are not clear after the animation.

Hello Mohammad_ZD,

Looks like no one has had a chance to reply to your question. If you’re able to answer a few questions, it might help others answer your question.

Are you using Pages or powerpoint to create the presentation? Has this issue appeared recently or after an update ? Is this only happening in PDF's from presentations or all kinds of documents ?

Take care.

The issue appeared only after the update. I also looked for this problem online and found other peopling facing the same problem. I am not the one who created the presentation so I don't know how it is created but its happening with app pdf documents. In addition, the problem is not only when using the preview, it is also with other pdf viewer programs. Also, the pdf is little blurred when opened with preview normally without full mode. I am using currently Adobe reader, however, not in full screen because it has the same problem.

Thanks for the reply 🙂
