Introducing PDF Print Engine version 5.5

Introducing PDF Print Engine version 5.5

Adobe distributes point releases to solution partners between major versions of PDF Print Engine. Two years after the launch of version 5, Adobe is releasing version 5.5 (July 2020), which introduces important new features that will improve print quality reproduction in packaging and large format printing.

Fine Line Rendering

Text rendering in PDF Print Engine uses CoolType, the same technology used to display text in Creative Cloud applications and Acrobat DC. However, in some packaging workflows, live text is converted to outlined graphics. To address such jobs, version 5.5 of PDF Print Engine introduces Fine Line Rendering—a new algorithm for rendering graphic elements, including outlined text and barcodes. It produces a lighter, cleaner appearance of very fine lines and small point size text that has been outlined.
