I just re-installed Acrobat Reader on my computer, and I noticed that all of my documents had strange fonts. Like they were pixelated, just like a low quality jpeg image. A totally undesirable, and hard to read view.
You can see it in the image below:
So after doing a little research, I found the fix. You need to go to the Edit tab on the Adobe Acrobat Menu, and then Preferences. In Preferences you select Page Display and there look for the Rendering box. You will find a drop down box that says Smooth Text. Change it from None to For Monitor or For Laptop/LCD Screens.
That should fix your problem. If it doesn’t leave a comment with your issue and we’ll try to find a fix for you.

Domplatz Linz – project description from the architects
The impressive neo-gothic Mariendom cathedral of Linz is clearly opposed by the unfinished Domplatz square, that had never been completed in accordance to the original idea to free up the entire quadrangle between the surrounding streets. This heterogeneous situation was unsatisfactory from the point of view of urban planning and was to be resolved by means of a competition, which also included the construction of a hotel and an underground car park as well as the revitalization of two existing baroque buildings.
By including the surrounding streets and by means of the solitary positioning of the new hotel a link to the heart of the city is created – a place at the square.

I’ve been flirting with the idea of creating a basic Photoshop course for well over a year now, and since I had more time on my hands (as I’ve quit my job, if you don’t already know), the idea is becoming reality as “The Secret” states.
Who is it For
This course was prepared for you, casual cool, talented architects, or designers that want to learn Photoshop in an easy relaxed manner. I hope to be able to help you with that, as I would have wanted to receive help when I first started using the software.
Why Another Photoshop Course, Dude?
Yes, there are a lot of courses and guides out there on the subject, and you can go ahead and hunt them down if you like. I won’t stop you. I believe this one is suited for architects best, and it gets you through the basics in a simple (and coherent) manner.
