    Hey-up, OK I did a logo and altered a typeface a little with direct selection tool, added a gradiant to the stroke by selecting outline stroke. Now I am shrinking it down (literally electing it and reducing with the mouse drag) and I can see it is creating jagged edges, which also print jagged too. As I didnt rasterise it, I dont get why it would alter at different sizes...I did the whole thing in Illustrator. Anyone have any ideas? Doc raster effects settings say its 300dpi, but I admit I dont know if it was that setting when I started out...you can see from the PDF attached that there are jagged lines on the outlines of the type.

    Hey I dled your PDF and opened it in Illustrator and shrunk it as small as I could and didnt see any pixelation... I am not sure what you are seeing... I did notice that the black box appears to have a gradient mesh applied to it, but only one color (black) and I don't really understand why you would have done that... maybe that has something to do with it?

    Or maybe, you accidently clicked VIEW>PIXEL PREVIEW which makes the vector appear pixelated just for faster loading if your computer is slower... but I do not know if it would actually print pixelated if you click that. I dont havea printer hooked up to this computer so I cannot test it. If that is what is going on though, you can just re-click the VIEW>PIXEL PREVIEW to reset back to normal.

    I hope this helps.

    There are no jagged lines on this logo. Did you happen to load it into a raster graphics program like Photoshop after you exported it as a pdf from Illustrator? That's the only thing I can think of.
