I've got a sequence of large (E sheet) maps that are exported to PDF. The problem is that my roads layer (gray in the image below) is sometimes getting distorted on output -- but only in some places.
In the below snippet, the
:( indicates a section of road that's got a distortion (almost "jumpy" line), while the
:) points to the same layer with the lines printed cleanly.
What's even weirder, the other line layer (blue/yellow lines) is always clearly represented. That implies to me this is some sort of symbology difference between the two layers, rather than a compression or resolution problem, but I honestly don't know what it could be -- they're both plain cartographic line symbols, just one in color and the other gray.
I tried unchecking the Format options in the Export Map dialog (Compress Vector Graphics, Convert Marker Symbols to Polygons, Embed All Document Fonts) and none had any effect.
What do I need to tweak in either the symbology or the export settings in order to get the line vectors to show cleanly?
