Subject [jira] [Commented] (PDFBOX-4435) Poor quality printing of PDF label
Date Fri, 18 Jan 2019 19:27:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-4435?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16746605#comment-16746605

Tres Finocchiaro commented on PDFBOX-4435:

... so this is strange... Using Adobe Acrobat and PDFCreator, I printed the original *label.pdf* to
a new PDF, then sent it back through PDFBOX.
 * PDFBOX prints without rasterizing (this is not a surprise, the bad data is stripped out)
 * The barcode printed in vector.  How is this even possible?

Before and after attached...

> Hello,
> I'm experiencing poor quality printing of PDF courier labels with PDFBox when printing
from the command line with the following command:
> {noformat}
> java -jar pdfbox-app-*.jar PrintPDF label.pdf
> {noformat}
> This makes scanning the QR code on these labels troublesome.
> I've tried versions 2.0.3, 2.0.13, 2.0.14 (SNAPSHOT) and all produce the same quality
issue. Interestingly version 1.8.16 does not appear to suffer from this issue.
> I have tried 2 different thermal printers, a GK420d and a CITIZEN CL-S400DT(Z) and both
output the same.
> When printing the label directly from the GNOME document viewer (Evince) the label prints
clearly on both printers.
> Please find examples of these labels attached.
> Can anything be done to prevent these quality issues?
> Thanks,
> David
