RE: SUMMARY: PDF problems on multiple platforms

The coarse grain effect, which is carried through to hard copy from Frame as
well as in Acrobat, can be modified (on NT4, at least).

Select Start > Settings > Printers > (select printer) > Properties > Device
Settings > Halftone Setup > Halftone Setup... > Halftone Pattern 

Change the default (I think its 8x8 Enhanced) to 2x2 Enhanced, and OK out of

You may need to experiment with this setting for different printers
