Screen Readable PDF Files

#1 Unread post by arango »

Dear All,

When submitting a PDF document generated from TeX or LaTex be sure to use a command similar to create first the PostScript file

dvips -Ppdf MyFile.dvi

This filter will force the PostScript file with level-1 fonts. The resulting PDF file will render the text as text and not curves. It also makes the PDF file smalller.

Then, use any PS to PDF converter like ps2pdf.

Good luck,

Hernan G. Arango

Another possibility would be dvipdfm MyFile.dvi, which directly generates pdf.

Cheers, Christian
