Everytime I try to export some vector artwork out from Illustrator 10, it looks all crappy in the pdf but yet when it prints, it prints fine... Any ideas?
Check your zoom size .... sometimes when the zoom size is on something like 33% or 66% the edges will look all jagged.
It starts out on like 145%, but even when i zoom in and out, it stays crappy.
No clue really - this happens to me too sometimes...
I'd say that the PDF just isn't exporting it right really. Are you using the free convertor or the paid-for one?
Ha something I do know about... I work for a company that creates pdf converters...
Ok when you print your pdf you need to go into the prefs and make shure you're in a custom size, that your dpi resolution is what you want it to be. That should do the trick.
I know this an old topic but it might help others with the same problem now.
But .. It prints fine... It's just when im viewing the pdf it looks like crap ...

No printing to pdf trough illustrator looks perfect, you must change your preferences you are probably lower then 300dpi in it. Just change that and it will perfect. I do this alot for my print jobs, since we often have to send a pdf with it.
How does it look exactly? And how are you printing your pdf?
