PDF opened in the Beta Viewer are blurry


I would very much like to be able to use the PDF viewer with annotation support. However, any PDF I open inside of it seems to be blurry, even when not zoomed in.

Zooming in (with the paperpile buttons) does make the problem much worse though:


Paperpile: 1.5.104
Browser: 78.0.3904.70 (Official Build) (64-bit)
OS: MacOS 10.14.6 (18G1012)

Hi! Is this happening with every PDF? We’ve received few reports of this issue; in most cases reloading or zooming in/out helps improve the resolution.

We haven’t been able to investigate the issue much further, but please feel free to share some example PDFs via chat or email at support@paperpile.com.

Yes, this is happening with every PDF I open. For comparison, here (on the right) is the Chrome rendering on the same Mac. Although I cannot set the zoom to be at the exact same factor, the difference is still visible.

Reopening/zomming in/out/restarting Chrome does not help.
