Borders in Pages for Mac look blurry when I export to pdf

Borders in Pages for Mac look blurry when I export to pdf. How can I make a pdf or JPEG retain the sharp edges and smooth shadows when I export?

The ColorSync filters control the conversion between color spaces of files on the Mac and are used when you export or print to pdf.
The ColorSync Utility is inside the Utilities folder inside the Applications folder.
see Alternate ColorSync PDF filters.

  • My images look blurry when I export or publish my site from Muse. Why and how do I fix it?

    My images look blurry, jagged, pixelated and low quality when I publish or export my site from Muse. Is there any way to avoid or fix this problem?

    The primary cause of blurring images is the less than Photoshop-quality image downsampling algorithm currently used in Muse (that was compounded in early betas due to a bug in the JPEG compression library we were using at that time). Due to work we've done for Beta 7 to improve image encoding performance we now have the infrastructure in place to enable us to take a much better image resampler/resizer (after Beta 7), so this source of blurring will be addressed.
    The other source of blurring is unique to opaque images containing line art or otherwise containing hard edges and large areas of solid color. When an image is opaque Muse will encode it as JPEG (if it's altered in Muse is a way that requires re-encoding). For line art this will introduce JPEG compression artifacts that can be noticeable depending on your eye and the specific image involved.
    There are (at least) to ways to avoid these JPEG compression artifacts:
    Resize your image before placing and avoid applying any effects (rounded corners, drop shadow, etc.) or doing any cropping or resizing in Muse. If the image is unaltered your original JPEG, PNG or GIF will be passed through unaltered.*
    Put at least one pixel of transparency in your original image. (It could be a single 99% opaque pixel.) This will force Muse to encode as PNG. PNG compression is lossless and thus doesn't introduce any compression artifacts. However, an average PNG can be 5 times the size of a JPEG for the same image, so there is an impact to webpage download performance.
    *For PSD files Muse has to encode the original PSD data into some web-friendly image format. If an image is resized in Photoshop and placed Muse won't resize/resample the image data, but it will encode it as JPEG or PNG depending on whether it contains transparency.

  • Problems with the new Pages for Mac

    I'm starting to see countless problems running the new Pages for Mac (5.0.1) and I can't find a way to resolve them.
    1. when I'm typing and want to delete word(s), I'll use the alt+delete function for ease, however this starts deleting words after the cursor, merging words together and changing my sentece. It comes from when I'm deleting as the new pages is giving me the dropdown menu for the autocorrect word.
    2. grammar check is off. Namely, it picks a random point in a word and moves on from there. EX: "because of the" will have "use of the" underlined in green and give me recommendations to change to "because of the" or "cause of the". Using those recommendations, I'll end up with something like: "becabecause of the"
    3. the find and replace function jumps around in the paper, and sometimes doesn't even display the word currently selected (leaving the user to scroll around looking for what is selected)
    4. Autocorrect has vanished for some reason: no autocapitalization, no turning fractions such as 1/2 into a tidy and neat fraction with small numbers for numerators/denominators, etc.
    I'm still using it, and these are what I have found, so there may be more later as I continue to use it. If anyone has found ways around these bugs, please let me know.
    Thanks!

    Pages 5 now uses the system autocorrect, which does not have as many features as the one inside Pages 4.  Some things you can add manually there.   Others you have to ask Apple to add via
    http://www.apple.com/feedback
    Or continue to use Pages 4 instead.

  • Why do my photos get blurry when they are enlarged to full screen from the disc I burn, or played on the t.v.?  I set the burn on the highest quality.  The photos don't look blurry when enlarged from iphoto on the computer.

    Why do my photos that are transferred from iphoto to idvd, and then burned on DVD, look blurry when the idvd is shown full screen on computer or on t.v.  They don't look blurry when I enlarge the iphoto pics on the computer.  I used the 'prof. quality" encoding setting before burning, and before putting photos on idvd.

    Hi
    DVD is as standard - only interlaced SD-Video (as on old CRT-TVs) and can never be any better than this.
    This is less than a quarter of Your Mac screen resolution.
    That's one part of Why You can see High res. on Your Mac - and not on DVD.
    Next part is what program is used to make the SlideShow.
    If You use iMovie'08 or 09 or 11 - to make it - it too degrades the final result as non of them can deliver interlaced SD-Video to iDVD but only half (every second line in the picture)
    I use
    • iMovie HD6 or
    • FinalCut (any version) or
    • FotoMagico™
    As they all delivers 100% of what iDVD or Toast™ or DVD Studio Pro or Whatever needs.

  • Pages for Mac document can't be opened on Pages for Ipad?

    If I create a doc with any of the templates availables in Pages for Mac (Mountain Lion, and stored on iCloud), shouldn't be possible to edit it in the Pages for iPad (IOS 7) version? It just says "Document can't be opened" or something like that.

    When you create a document in iWork on the mac, a lot of formatting is lost when you save it to iCloud,
        That is not true to my knowledge, as you can reopen the file from iCloud on the Mac without problem.
    or you try to open it in iWork for iOS.
        Again, where are you getting this from? My understanding is that formatting from OSX is retained but a degree of it can't be edited or created in iOS.

    Where are you? Generally you can get phone support depending how and when you bought either your device or software.
    Yes unfortunately Apple periodically makes statements that are not true and has been held to account by the consumer authorities. It has happened here in Australia and the EEC has done the same. Unfortunately it is based in the USA where in recent times corporations have not been held to account.

  • Edit in Pages for Mac - Download from iCloud in Word format

    Does anyone know if the following is a documented limitation?
    Create a Pages document in Pages for iPad.
    Log in to iCloud.com using Safari. You can download the document as a Word document. (Click on the document > click on the Download button > select "Word".)
    Open the document in Pages for Mac.
    Modify anything in the text and then Save the file.
    Log in to iCloud.com using Safari. You can no longer download the document as a Word document. You can only download it as a Pages document.
    (Steps 1 and 2 are not necessary to reproduce the problem. The limitation is there with a new dcument from Pages for Mac as well.)
    Does anyone know if there is any easy work around or fix?
    The quickest one I can think of is to open the document in Pages for Mac again and then export to Word. This is of course impossible if you are at a location where you do not have Pages for Mac.

    Hi Barry,
    I think we have not understood each other.
    Step 3 is not opening a completely "foreign" document. It is opening a Pages document created by Pages on the iPad. But ok, let's call it "slightly foreign", as the formats between the Mac and iPad versions clearly are not identical.
    I do not get what you mean by "first time". What I would like to do is to edit a file freely on iPad and Mac back and forth to my heart's content several times. That I can do. In the end, once I am done with the file, I would like to export it to Word from iCloud using Safari or another browser. That I cannot do.
    This export would mean I can open the file on a Mac without Pages or on a Windows PC. It would also mean that I can have files on the iCloud, editable from iPad or Mac, but only accessed from Windows, when I sit at the PC and discover the need to get the latest version.
    That export works fine for documents I create with Pages for iPad, but as soon as I touch them with Pages for Mac, they can no longer be exported to Word from Safari.
    Regards
    Magnus

  • Why does my RAW image look grainy when I export it in to Photoshop CC from Lightroom for editing?

    Why does my RAW image look grainy when I export it in to Photoshop CC from Lightroom for editing?
    Checked LR's setting for Ps export and they haven't changed since it was OK a few days ago? It is OK if you zoom in but in 'fit page' it looks terrible!

  • Is there a Pages for MAC OS 10.7.x? If not, what is the alternative? Concrete issue is that I have received a .pages document and need to edit. Many thanks

    Is there a Pages for MAC OS 10.7.x?
    If not, what is the alternative?
    Concrete issue is that I have received a ".pages" document and need to edit. I am running Mac Pro with OS X 10.7.
    Many thanks

    It is important that you determine if the .pages document originated from Pages ’08, Pages ’09, Pages v1.7.2 (IOS 6), or was exported as Pages ’09 from Pages v5+ on OS X Mavericks. If it meets one of these criteria, then you can edit the .pages document on your Lion machine with Pages ’09 from the iWork ’09 DVD. Pages documents can not be opened with TextEdit, but can be viewed with Preview.
    On the otherhand, if the .pages document was created with Pages for iCloud beta, Pages v2.2.1 (IOS 7), or Pages v5+ on Mavericks, then your only recourse is to edit the document with Pages for iCloud beta. Since Fall 2013, Apple changed the .pages document format into something even more malevolently proprietary. Apple word processing products since this timeframe, are subsets of the Pages ’09 features/functionality, and will filter out content they do not support.
    A Pages ’09 document is usually a compressed (zip) folder archive that looks like a regular file to the Finder. The newer Pages family of products only write out a package that to the Finder, also appears to be a regular file, but in reality it is a folder. The newer Pages documents must be zipped before placed on non-Apple filesystems.

    We have developed a desktop application using Flash software and published the same for MAC environment. When we double click on the index.app file, the application is working perfectly in Mac 10.6.7 at our office. But if the same index.app file is double clicked in Mac 10.6.7 at out clients location, its not opening. For your information the client is able to open this same application by double clicking on index.swf file. The main problem is that client is not able to open the application using index.app file at their office whereas we are able to do so at our office. Can anyone give some suggestions to sort this problem?

    The most common reason is different versions of Flash, or different versions of web browsers used.  Some users may elect to not have Flash installed at all because of the processor overhead of Flash.  If you are going to make an application for a client, check what operating system and browser versions they are using first.  Then determine if a stand alone application is required, or if they have the necessary plugins to run specific browser enhanced code.
    P.S. MAC is an acronym for Media Access Control.  Mac is the shorthand for Macintosh, the operating system and computers made by Apple Inc.

  • How may I open Pages '08 docs in Pages for Mac?  Requires saving to Pages '09 which I don't have.

    How may I open Pages '08 docs in Pages for Mac?  Requires saving to Pages '09 which I don't have.

    If you still have a working copy of Pages ’08, then save the Pages documents out as .doc Word files and open those in Pages v5.5.2. If you do not have a machine to run Pages '08 on, but still have the iWork '08 DVD, you can install that on Yosemite, and then update Pages '08 to version 3.0.3. Then export the Pages documents to Word. Or you can simply avoid using Pages v5.5.2 altogether, as it has a fraction of the capability found in Pages '08.

  • Need newest version of pages for my iMac. When trying to download latest version the message said I needed OSX 10.9? Where do I get this? I really feel stupid when I can't download a program!

    I just worked on a Pages document on my iPad. I wanted to finish it on my iMac (OSX 10.7.5). I emailed the iPad Pages document to get it on my iMac. I then tryed to open the Pages document on my iMac. The message said I needed a newer version of Pages for the iMac. I then went to the Apple store to upgrade Pages for the iMac. When I tried to download the new version, I received a message that Pages couldn't be installed unless I upgraded to OSX 10.9?  What the He.. is going on?

    be very careful about getting the iWork "updates."   This forum is FULL of complaints about it.
    Mavericks seems good, though.
    If you try Pages 5 and dislike it, Pages 4.3 will still be located in an iWork Folder within your Applications Folder.

  • APA Style Template in Pages for Mac?

    Does anyone know how to create an APA style Template in Pages for Mac?

    Search for a Word APA template to your liking and open that in Pages.
    The problem you will encounter with Pages 5.5.1 is that the List styles are fairly broken and require far more work than they should need.
    If you have Pages '09, use that instaed.

  • Help with pages for mac.

    hi i have pages for my macbook pro, when i do some work on it for college i have to keep converting it after iv finished which then creates another document, because college computers are windows and only support word. is there any way i can get it too convert itself after iv finished with it? because im getting work done on it and its created multiple documents when exporting and im losing track of everything. either that or shall i just buy word?

    Pages is quite different to Word in the way it works and many of its features, so you will always be exporting to Word, not saving.
    TextEdit and Bean, both free, will work and save in .doc as will several other applications, LibreOffice, also free, is the closest to MsOffice.
