The text looks jagged in my PDF document

When viewing a PDF file in Skim, larger text may look jagged. You can turn on anti-aliasing in Skim to make PDF files more readable.

To turn on anti-aliasing:

  1. Choose Skim > Preferences, and click Display.
  2. Select the "Anti-alias text and line art" checkbox.

If you turn on the "Anti-alias text and line art" option, large characters and line art are smoothed out and do not appear to be so jagged. Skim may take longer to display your document when smoothing out characters and line art.
