Text smoothing in Adobe Reader

Published by Claro Software on

Adobe Reader turns off text smoothing by default if it detects ClaroRead is running because it wrongly thinks that ClaroRead might want to magnify the text and this is easier if smoothing is off.

You can prevent this happening by starting ClaroRead, then opening Adobe Reader and going to the Edit menu, Preferences, Page Display category, Rendering section, and changing “Smooth Text” to “For Laptop/LCD screens” or “For Monitor”. This will leave smoothing on when ClaroRead is running and your text will look better.
