Check the dots per inch (DPI) setting on the document itself. I believe standard printed documents should be 300dpi, and the Mendix default is significantly lower than that.
Thanks for the response. The default PPI (pixels per inch) in the document template in Mendix is 120. I bumped this up to 200 PPI, but it doesn't do my image any good. The quality is still very poor.
Just for testing purposes - if you add the image to an images container inside the project and add it as a static image with the proper width, how is the quality then when generating a pdf?
I recall an issue with image compression somewhere in the past, but I'm not sure if Mendix applies any compression System.image(s) anymore.
I just tried this and the result in quality is the same, both images look poor.
I just took your image and included it in a document template as a static image. I set pixels per inch to 300. I generated a pdf file which seems to be readable and not have any image issues. I don't want to post these on a file sharing site as they seem to have your address on them. I contacted you via the forum - if you respond to me, I will send the files I generated so you can compare.
