PDFTron print quality improvements

When users print from PDFTron the quality is very poor on screen and on the hardcopy.

Result: Unreadable hardcopies.

When using acrobat viewer the quality is much better on the same PDF file.
Can we improve the quality of the PDFtron?

    The poor quality prints from PDFTron is one of the biggest issues we encounter when trying to move users to PDFTron. Once this is resolved, I think PDFTron will be more accepted by users.

    PDFTron 5.0 offers and API to control this. This is currently under investigation and we will likely be able to address this issue in 2020 R2

    Rudi Pieters Jun 18, 2018 Changed the title to 'PDFTron print quality improvements' as I understand that is the problem. Please give me some examples to check.

    Ludwig Jurriëns Nov 26, 2018 Three times the same document, left print to file from PDFTron viewer, middle in PDFTron viewer, right the original PDF. From right to left decreasing print quality, the last step show the highest quality drop. This really should be addressed. End users complain about this on a daily bases.
