Redefine printing with new features

Redefine printing with
new features

Adobe distributes point releases to solution partners between major versions of PDF Print Engine. Two years after the launch of version 5, Adobe released version 5.5 (July 2020) which introduced 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.

Fine Line Rendering provides a powerful new option for rendering content in several job segments: packaging, security printing, mapping and architecture.
